The magic of airplanes/steampunk societies/bombs/armies/destruction of the Hindenburg may not be the most apt visuals for all of the brooding Dinosaur Bones
catalog, but there are only a handfull of songs floating around out there, so who knows? It certainly fits here. "Ice Hotels" is one of them, and the video pairs the tranquility turned explosion of the song with imagery of man's attempts at flight/epic destructions of/with technology. It is pretty "epique", as they (maybe) say. When the dust settles, we're left wondering where (and when) the Ice Hotel is exactly, and if we can check out anytime we like (but never leave).
Dinosaur Bones are a Canadian indie rock band formed in 2008 in Toronto consisting of songwriter/vocalist/guitarist Ben Fox, bassist Branko Scekic, keyboardist David Wickland, drummer Lucas Fredette, and guitarist Josh Byrne.
Dinosaur Bones formed in late 2007 and began performing in early 2008. They recorded and independently released a self-titled EP in May 2008 and began touring locally. The four-song effort was enough to garner two XM Verge Music Award nominations, for Album of the Year and Artist of the Year. In October 2010, Dinosaur Bones signed an international record deal with Canadian independent record label Dine Alone Records (City & Colour, Tokyo Police Club, Alexisonfire). Their Birthright EP, released a month later, marked the band's first release on Dine Alone Records. And on March 8th 2010, the band released their first full-length album, My Divider. The album was met with consistently-strong reviews, including Montreal's Hour magazine proclaiming: "These 11 tracks are emotional and gripping, and show the band as a tight, whole artistic unit with a signature sound." Both the Birthright EP and My Divider were produced by Jon Drew, whose production credits include Arkells, Tokyo Police Club, and Fucked Up.
