Carlisle’s The Lucid Dream return with the release of their fifth album, The Deep End. Following on from their most successful album, 2018’s Actualisation, the band push the boundaries further, creating something remarkably unique. Including genres of techno, drum ‘n’ bass and hip-hop, this album is filled with energy and musical experimentation.

The incredible 11-minute opening song, Coalescence, invites the listener to participate in a euphoric experience, comprised of nightclub-inspired techno beats and synth sounds. From here, you can expect an amalgamation of intricate bass, vocals and musical samples throughout the other tracks, finishing with the only guitar-based song on the album, High And Wild. Produced alongside collaborator Ross Halden (Ghost Town Studios, Leeds) and frontman Mark Emmerson, this album is a truly unique experience.
