The Toronto trio Ménage’s name suggests a certain sensuality about its music. But as attested by the band’s latest tune, “Love Song”, there’s also a tenderness and sadness to the music as well. “Love Song”, which is structured as a duet around a love that has since been lost, is an emotionally resonant number for anyone who has ever experienced heartbreak before.
The band describes the song to PopMatters saying, “‘Love Song’ is Ménage’s most vulnerable song yet. It simply tells the story of one of the members of this band obsessing over the thought we all have, at one point it another. The thought of, ‘What if…’ that can haunt us infinitely. The song is simple and sincere so it only felt natural to make a video that was symbolic of that. Recorded live off the floor, ‘Love Song’ was captured [in the video] by our friend and director, Bradley W. Ragland. We filmed in our home town, Toronto.”
“Love Song” is the second in-studio video from Ménage’s forthcoming EP, the second in a series of four mini-EPs. You can watch the first studio capture for the song “Promises” below:
