Belle and Sebastian unveil a new Toronto-shot music video
Belle and Sebastian, a band way too cool for obvious choices like Los Angeles or New York, looked to Toronto for help shooting a music video for “The Party Line,” a single off the upcoming album Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance. The Glaswegian indie-pop outfit chose not to set any of the action among Toronto’s more recognizable landmarks (that’s Drake’s job, after all), but anyone who trains a careful eye on the backdrop might just be able to make out the Great Hall’s distinctive balcony railing amidst all the carefully choreographed dancing and trippy lighting changes. The video was directed by LeBlanc and Cudmore, a duo whose CV reads like a Canadian-indie checklist. Oh yeah, and the song is very much worth a listen, too.
