The last time we heard a peep out of indie-folk’s favourite Québécois Patrick Watson was 2009 when he relased his phenomenal album Wooden Arms, so we’ve been waiting for a long time for a reason to share him with you. His inimitable style binds the best of pop, folk and classical with a voice nothing short of extraordinary. From a preliminary listen to the album, it reflects his past work well and retains the abstractly surreal quality that makes it feel like the soundtrack to a confusing, imaginative, but happy dream. Check out the recently released video for “Into Giants” below.
