McDonald has ventured behind the camera for "Brutal Hearts," the new single by inoffensive Can-rockers Bedouin Soundclash (perhaps best known for their tune "When The Night Feels My Song") who have paired up with rising Montreal based singer/songwriter Coeur De Pirate. (Yes, this is all very Canadian). Shot on location in and around Toronto's Kensington Market, the production brought forth enough material for two videos, both debuted on Spinner. Both give off a French New Wave vibe in the song described by Bedouin Soundclash frontman Jay Malinowski as an "anti-hero love song." The first video is centered around Malinowski and his former girlfriend Beatrice Martin (aka Coeur De Pirate). The second video features The Other Guys In The Band. And they both go for a lo-fi, black-and-white aesthetic which is interesting, though not particularly memorable.
Anyway, you can check 'em out below and if you like what you hear, you can pick up Bedouin Soundclash's last album Light The Horizon which features the song. Coeur De Pirate is currently supporting her recently released album Blonde.
