    Lanterns On The Lake

    Fuse the most fragile and graceful end of the folk music spectrum to the most luminous properties of cinemascope rock, and you have the stunning debut album from Newcastle-based sextet LANTERNS ON THE LAKE. Following the success of their critically acclaimed debut in 2011, they return with a new album, the sublime Until The Colours Run.

    The source of the music remains the same, an exquisitely crafted blend of symphonic rock, folk and electronics – but much has changed in the interim. Until The Colours Run was recorded during a time of financial and personal adversity, and as a result is more soulful and dynamic than its predecessor. In sound, it’s both harder and more luminous, and a more emotionally and politically charged experience, as singer/lyricist Hazel Wilde paints unflinching portraits of what she sees. It’s a haunting, often devastating combination.
