Lanterns On the Lake- 'Gracious Tide, Take Me Home'
I first found out about these guys back in 07'-08' when stumbling across some free demos they were giving away on their Last FM page. Their dreamy cinematic tunes sucked me in, highlighted by frontwoman Hazel Wilde's dreamy vocals. The UK group recently signed up with label Bella Union and unveiled their debut, Gracious Tide, Take Me Home. Several tracks like, "If I've Been Unkind" and "I Love You, Sleepyhead" that are from previous EP's were re-recorded for the album. Speaking on the album's lyrical content and water inspired title, Hazel Wilde had this to say..."A lot of lyrics were inspired by me and Paul moving back to the coast where i grew up, after we'd been living near the city centre. They're also memories of growing up here, the feeling of homesickness, and the stories of people around us and of the sea. The title 'Gracious Tide, Take Me Home' seemed to sum up all of the themes."
