The crowning moment of Lanterns On The Lake’s career so far has already achieved near legendary status, their show recorded last year with the Royal Northern Sinfonia at Sage Gateshead now receiving a highly anticipated vinyl release. Few bands are more suited to the big widescreen symphonic treatment and this musical coming together feels as natural as it does compelling and emphatic. 

From the sweeping majestic Faultlines to the sombre epic Beings and the delicate beauty of Green & Gold; the band switches from sparse arrangements to grandiose without missing an aching heartbeat. 

There’s no thrills, no witty banter; just the sound of one of the best bands in the UK at the very peak of their powers. Long may they continue.
