Lanterns On The Lake - Gracious Tide, Take Me Home
The sonic breadth of the record is drawn between slow, dense waves of melancholy and atmospheric storm (as best emphasised by ‘Ships in the Rain’) and a more hopeful, sweet melodic folk-pop lilt (the perky ‘A Kingdom’ may well convert many of the assorted Mumford/Noah fans). But their most confident, expressive territory is found in the spaces between, specifically when the breathy, Elizabeth Fraser-esque vocal chimes of Hazel Wilde tangle up sensually with the gliding strings and an admirably mature reservation in not pushing for cheap thrills, but instead revelling in the sensuality of the moment. ‘The Places We Call Home’, sitting somewhere between Sufjan, Sigur Rós, Arcade Fire and a Northumberland folk troupe is absolutely beautiful: six minutes of gorgeous swelling, moving atmospherics and stark emotion. And standout track ‘I Love You, Sleepyhead’, arriving towards the end of the record is quite magnificent, especially in its rising cacophony of sound that steadily picks us up and carries us towards the horizon. Gracious Tide, Take Me Home proves Lanterns on the Lake to be a band on the rise, the kind of artists evoking the coldest and darkest of wintery nights and that flickering light in the distance. Dark melancholic sounds tinged with a hopefulness inspite of the disconsolation their stories often harbour. (extracted from drownedinsound.com)

About:"The idyllic chill of their glitchy moodscapes and mournful arpeggios waft like spectres along the line between ’80s and ’90s folktronica such as This Mortal Coil, Mazzy Star and One Dove. ‘Gracious Tide…’ stays with you like a dream you wish would keep recurring." (nme.com)
