Premiere: Lanterns On The Lake - Elodie

Epic Bella Union signings deliver colourful new video...
Lanterns On The Lake

Returning with their second album 'Until The Colours Run' last year, Lanterns On The Lake proved that there was more to them than meets the eye.

While their debut LP may have cast the North East collective as purveyors of poetically doomed folk music, 'Until The Colours Run' introduced new textures, new elements.

A fine return, it found Lanterns On The Lake retaining the elements which made their debut so enticing, yet adding fresh tones, fresh ideas.

Stripped from the LP, 'Elodie' has received the visual treatment. Writing for Clash last year, Lanterns On The Lake explained that "we felt this was a good way to open the album with that feedback leading in to the soaring guitars and accordion. We wanted it to be a contrast to the last record in how we opened this one."

The abrasive nature of 'Elodie' is present in the visuals, layering distorted primary colours on a monochrome depiction of the group themselves.
