It's been fifteen years since Bella Union first swung into action.

Fifteen years which have witnessed the label grow and win acclaim from all corners of the music world. ClashMusic recently sat down with founder, owner and lynchpin Simon Ramonde to look over the imprint's tale to date.

“My attitude is just find great music, work with great people, don’t work with dicks” he grinned “I’d rather work with people I really love than worry about sales and all that kind of stuff".

With that in mind, we decided to ask a few modern Bella groups to look over the label's back catalogue. Here's Lanterns On The Lake's choice.

"It was the track which first introduced me to Bella Union probably about 8 years ago, for which I am eternally grateful. It's just an absolutely bewitching song, with the most beautiful vocals, shimmering music and manages to be both uplifting and full of longing."
