Lanterns On The Lake – Caught On the Way

This is a turn up for the books, a band from Newcastle to really treasure. Can’t recall a single band of note coming from there, which is rather surprising given its population’s emotive nature (insight gained purely from watching their football fans). Lanterns on the Lake are a relatively new proposition (they were previously known as Greenspace) but they have already amassed an impressive batch of lush melodic tunes. Led by Hazel Wilde’s free spirited vocals there is something otherworldly about what they offer. There are glimpses of the Cocteau Twins and This Mortal Coil but ultimately Lanterns on the Lake present a convincing dream pop sound that is uniquely their own. ‘Caught On The Way’ is sumptuous throughout with Wilde’s vocal fragility matched only by the lightly sprayed chiming chords. Heavenly. KD
