The Luyas unleash new video for opening track off Animator

The Luyas, the outfit of Montreal natives Pietro Amato, Mathieu Charbonneau, Bucky Wheaton, Sarah Neufeld and Jessie Stein, dropped their third album, Animator, last month via Dead Oceans and Paper Bag Records.

Animator was conceived right after a close friend’s sudden death and “is supposed to be some weird resuscitation.” as singer and multi-instrumentalist Jessie Stein explained. “The animator’s job is to create the semblance of movement in things that cannot move themselves. The musician’s is to make us feel like something is happening with a sound”.

The quintet are currently touring Animator across North America and will reach European shores later in the month. You can check all their stops here.

The Luyas have unveiled a mesmerising video to accompany the outstanding epic 9-minute opener ‘Montuno’. Mylene Simard directed it and you can watch it below. Straight after listen to the first single off Animator, ‘Fifty, Fifty’.
