Grizzly Bear are releasing a new album, Painted Ruins, this Friday via RCA. Previously they have shared four tracks from the album, "Three Rings," "Mourning Sound," "Four Cypresses," and "Neighbors" (the latter via a video). Now the band has shared a striking music video for "Mourning Sound." Beatrice Pegard directed the clip, which was filmed in Paris and stars French actress Clémence Poésy (Harry Potter, In Bruges, 127 Hours), seemingly as a bride. A press release describes the video as "a playful, pastel-drenched commentary on women's liberation." It features lots of synchronized dancing, ass cheeks as percussion, and rainbows coming out of a woman's breasts. It's a strange video, with sci-fi hint. Watch it below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates. The band will perform "Mourning Sound" on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert this Thursday.

Pick up Under the Radar's current print issue (Summer 2017/Issue 61) to read our new in-depth cover story interview with Grizzly Bear on Painted Ruins.

Grizzly Bear were formerly a New York band, but three members (Chris Bear, Ed Droste, and Chris Taylor) now live in Los Angeles, with Daniel Rossen living in Santa Fe, NM. The band spent two years writing and recording Painted Ruins. Taylor produced the album, which was recorded at Allaire Studios in upstate New York, and at several locations around Los Angeles, including Taylor's own Terrible Studios. Painted Ruins is the follow-up to 2012's Shields, and they have long been hinting at a new album, releasing various abstract teaser trailers for it.
