Artist: Lanterns on the Lake
Label: Bella Union
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 13 November 2015

Lanterns on the Lake release their third album, Beings, through Bella Union. The band hails from Newcastle, and work on Beings began in February 2014...

Beings contains 10 songs (42 min, 17 sec), with my personal favourite track being the hauntingly beautiful 'Send Me Home'. What's interesting about Lanterns on the Lake is the fact that from track to track you never know what to expect. Each song is varied - this is not some dull, churned out material written and performed for the money. You can tell that the band enjoy each and every minute of the entire process, from writing to performing and mixing the finished tracks.

Their particular blend of tastes and influences mean that this album makes for interesting listening. It's another album that reaps more rewards the more times you listen to it.
