Through interviews and live performances, Bleeding Daylight explores Vancouver-based Parkland’s unconventional mix of alt-country songwriting and improvisational sonic abstraction.
A band full of seasoned musical interpreters who push themselves—and each other—into parts unknown, Parkland never plays a song the same way twice. This film takes the viewer inside underground arts venue Merge where, in the course of a day, Parkland reinterpret songs and speak about the day-to-day inspirations behind their wide-ranging process.
Bleeding Daylight is an immersive sound and visual experience that delves deeply into Parkland’s constantly morphing musical territory of impassioned, heart-laid-bare songwriting, textural improvisation, and alt-country twang.
