"My friend Ian had come across the clavicyclette, made by a great piano man in Montreal named Spike Taylor," Little Scream, aka Laurel Sprengelmeyer, tells Spinner. "It's like a dep bike that people use to deliver groceries from corner stores [called Depanneurs in Quebec] but with a piano on the front of it instead of a basket."
Though she had "zero budget" to work with, Little Scream still managed to pull together a choir and the crazy bike for the video shoot. It was a bonus, of course, that she didn't need some flashy (and expensive) studio set to bring to life the track from her Polaris Prize-longlisted album, 'The Golden Record.'
"It's a song about flirting with the apocalypse, and fortunately Montreal has no shortage of abandoned looking spaces like the one we used," says the musician, who's hitting the road with Plants and Animals March 1, trekking across North America (including a SXSW pit stop!) to turn on music lovers to her inventive art-pop.
While the clavicyclette might steal the spotlight in this video, keep your eyes peeled for Arcade Fire's own multi-instrumentalist Richard Reed Parry who co-produced 'The Golden Record' and drops in for some Little Scream video action, too.
