VIDEO: Lanterns On The Lake – Another Tale From Another English Town

Following up their debut ‘Gracious Tide, Take Me Home’ for Bella Union in 2011, North East Star gazers Lanterns On The Lake return with a new single from their forthcoming second album, due for release late Summer. ‘Another Tale From Another English Town’ the widescreen sound and piercing vocals: manages to distill their sweeping hazy-dream-folk sound into perhaps one of their most affecting moments yet. Watch the video below.

The equally beautiful video by director James Alexander Grieves mirrors the song’s elegy for the inevitable end of youthful innocence, and the hard times ahead. “I think the way things are going in this country, it’s going to be hard for people not to write music that carries some of that weight,” says singer / lyricist Hazel Wilde. “While we were making the record a lot of our friends were losing their jobs and there were some drastic cuts being made, especially in our part of the world”.
