In their song Ballad of Lake Pearl, Eustache McQueer fights off social conventions and the violence with which they are imposed. The lyrics are of a fragmented poetic style in this fragile accoustic set up. For the videoclip we chose a similar associative approach. We didn’t want to tell a specific story, but went for a visual poem.


The videoclip was home-produced on an iPad during the 2020 confinement of COVID-19.
