Ghostly piano and unforced female vocals mean that it’s time to welcome Lanterns On The Lake back into our world. With a period of nearly two years from when the band first featured on Breaking More Waves till their album Gracious Tide, Take Me Home is released on September 19, it has been a long wait. Certainly in this camp the words ‘eagerly anticipated’ cannot be over used.
The first taster from the record is You’re Almost There an intoxicatingly beautiful piece of work, the most peaceful and perfect sound you will hear this week. Listen to this slow burning celestial music with your eyes shut and images of churches, desolate buildings and candlelight may float into your brain. Sombre, calming and demanding to be played over and over You’re Almost There raises expectation for this Bella Union release even further.
Lanterns On The Lake will be playing at both End Of The Road and Bestival later this year, events which unquestionably have the best line ups of the UK festivals for 2011. The video for the single, together with a free download both stream below.Lanterns On The Lake - You're Almost There
