Crown Lands recently released their self-titled debut album and took part in two drive-in concerts with The Trews. They've now put out a single and video for "Sun Dance" off their new album.
The video definitely revels in a "homage to nature" featuring "levitating performances in a distorted glimmering garden" and was filmed at Allen Gardens in Toronto by Director Alex P Smith.
The band are also encouraging fans to participate in a campaign launched in partnership with WEARTH to help the environment while celebrating Crown Lands music.
WEARTH is committed to helping address the environmental issues of "deforestation, climate change and food security" with "positive, meaningful and tangible actions". For every 50 streams generated, Crown Lands will plant a tree and also offer fans a chance to win a vinyl and merch prize pack. To take part, you can connect your streaming account by clicking here and revisit the website any time to see how many trees will be planted throughout the campaign.
The record art for the band's new album is designed by Bruno Borges and reflects Crown Lands aesthetic.
Lead singer and drummer Cody Bowles explains that it's:
“...a reflection of the world we live in, but bent through a heightened, psychedelic otherworldly lens. The colour palette is meant to reflect the sonic palette of the album: warm, inviting, nostalgic. Grand landscapes are what we live for - we spend as much time communing with nature as possible, and it comes out in our work."
