Surface of Atlantic is an indie band from Montreal, Canada, who’s music is a blend of folk, cinematic ambiances and indie rock. The band has been compared in the past to Pink Floyd, Beck and Sigur Ros for their experimental musicianship. It all started back in 2004, with Montreal jam sessions that eventually gave birth to a first album in 2007: “Ephemeral as we speak” with the contribution of a newly involved string quartet. The band gathered a loyal crowd throughout the years with their unique concerts that included 10 musicians on stage and projections of abstract and dreamy visuals. The music video for “To the lions” was exquisitely directed by Kristof Brandl, who catapulted himself into the world of filmmaking when he was only 17 years old. Since then, he has been involved in several other film projects around the globe, giving each one his own interpretation of visual poetry. His work exhibits the unique, uncompromising way this up-and-coming director perceives the world.
