Lau return with their new album produced by John Parish. Already acknowledged as thrilling live performers and folk music pioneers, Lau arrive at a new creative peak. The bandís 12-year recording career is resplendent with unexpected collaborations, accolades and innovative ideas. The sound of Lau in 2019 is perhaps closer to late period Beatles than to the traditional tunes and ballads of their 2007 debut Lightweights and Gentlemen. And yet the new albumís closing track ĎRiadí marks a full circle, stripping the lineup back to bare acoustic instruments. This is Lauís first new music since 2015ís The Bell That Never Rang (***** The Guardian; The Heraldís Album of The Year). Producer John Parish, widely celebrated for his recordings and collaborations with P.J Harvey, Eels, Sparklehorse, and many more, has captured the essence of Lauís songwriting: tender, bewitching and mournful, uplifting, experimental and political. These are new sounds still rooted in the traditional music that brought together the UKís three finest folk artists.
