Don’t call The Besnard Lakes the new John and Yoko. Husband and wife team Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas make up The Besnard Lakes, a four-piece indie rock band hailing from Montreal, Canada. Their sound has been described as expansive and generational, ranging from psychedelic ’60s rock, to cosmic ’70s pop, to post rock and shoegaze.
The band’s third album, The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night was released on 3/9/20210 which Jace Lasek describes as, “psychedelic rock – each song is its own little world, an atmosphere. I’ve always been enamored with these songs that take forever to get going, long songs that build, with a story and a long build to a climax…very much like that. Each song is a story and we really want people to listen to the record in its entirety.”
