Lanterns on the Lake light up The Kazimier on Wednesday, 13th November.
When life gives you lemons… you can either chicken out or make a brilliantly sweet and sour, spine tingling electronic folk pop record. Gladly, during times of financial and personal trouble and after the departure of two band members, Lanterns On The Lake gathered all their strength and opted for the latter. The result is called ‘Until The Colours Run’ and is a worthy follow-up to the Newcastle group’s debut album ‘Gracious Tide, Take Me Home’, which received overwhelming praise and 4 star reviews from the likes of Q Magazine, MOJO, and The Independent.
The five-piece with singer and lyricist Hazel Wilde are right now showcasing their deliciously rich and layered electronic folk rock supporting Frightened Rabbit before treating a few select UK venues to a headline set, including “The Kaz”. On the menu for their Liverpool show, we can expect a blend of warm, velvety ballads and haunting tales alongside ironically danceable political and social criticism spiced with a good portion of lyrical wit. If that whets your appetite you should under no circumstances miss what’s promising to be a great feast.
