PS I Love You’s second long-player, Death Dreams, was released earlier this month and has received rave-reviews from critics in North America and Europe. Last week Noisey/Vice debuted the Nevan Lochhead directed video for Death Dreams’ relentless ‘Princess Towers’. Click on the still below to view the video.
The band’s Paul Saulnier recently told NOW Magazine about the building in Kingston that inspired the song ‘Princess Towers’: “It’s a really strange-looking building, probably the tallest in the city,” says Saulnier. “When you’re riding the ferry and looking at Kingston, the city looks like an old, pretty place, and then there’s this giant monolithic concrete thing. It’s weird-looking, but I’ve always loved it, and it has charm.”

To the casual on-looker, PS I Love You’s quick rise to the summit of the intensely competitive Canadian music landscape is the thing dreams are made of. Heck – just over one year ago the band released their highly praised homage to their hometown Kingston, Ontario. Meet Me At The Muster Station was embraced by critics across the globe garnering consistently dazzling reviews. As a result PS I Love You’s Benjamin Nelson and Paul Saulnier began to tour Muster Station around the planet.
Naturally, the band’s follow-up would gather inspiration from the opportunities that the success of Muster Station brought their way. You know, playing gigs all over the world, picking up new fans, making new friends, sharing the stage with artists that you respect. PS I Love You’s new album touches on all of these themes. If the band’s debut was about being from Kingston, album number two is about being away from Kingston.
