The Barr Brothers Release "Old Mythologies" Video

The Barr Brothers have released a video for the song “Old Mythologies,” off their 2011 self-titled debut. The video, directed by Kaveh Nabatian with cinematography by Christophe Collette (Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene, Sigur Ros), shows the quartet on the rooftop of a building in Montreal’s Plateau neighborhood. With the hazy backdrop of the French Canadian city in the distance, the band members stare blankly as they are poked and prodded by mysterious arms, assaulted with pies, eggs, feathers, mud, water balloons, lobsters, lipstick and various other objects. You can check out the video below.

In addition, The Barr Brothers kicked off their lengthiest tour to date last week and will perform at Vancouver, BC’s St James Community Hall tonight. Please see below for the full tour itinerary.
