Lanterns On The Lake share video for ‘The Crawl’

Ten months on from the release of Beings, their critically acclaimed third album, LANTERNS ON THE LAKE have today shared a video to current single “The Crawl”.  Of the video director James Alexander Grieves says: “There’s something quite haunting about (The Crawl), there are moments of often unusual, evocative imagery in the lyrics but there’s also this nostalgic, poetic, romantic quality to it. The video is a glimpse into a moment in time set in the ballroom dance halls here in the North East of England in the 1950’s. It captures that special moment between two people – the kind of moments that stay with us for a lifetime; where everything around you stops and you leave the world outside.”

Critical acclaim for Beings, out now on Bella Union:


“Their most affecting and cohesive album to date.” MOJO – 4 Stars ****

“For a band who floated in on waves of lilting dream-pop about five years ago, Wilde’s resilient chamber-pop outsiders prove remarkably adept at darker, tougher dramas on Beings… As the swelling title-track epically proves, Lanterns can brood with the best.” The Independent On Sunday – 4 Stars ****

“Mature, sophisticated and quietly stirring indie rock… Lanterns On The Lake are making rock music that, in terms of how vital it feels in 2015, is criminally unsung.” DIY – 4 Stars ****

“Another heart-rendingly beautiful release, comprising dynamic post-rock atmospherics and tender revelations with rich and tasteful production throughout… An absorbing listen from start to finish.” Guitar & Bass – 8/10

“Bridging an imagined gap between Mogwai and Beach House, Lanterns On The Lake create a dynamic atmospheric swirl on Beings using creeping builds, dizzying drops and dark lyrical drama.” Q

“There’s a clear confidence in their third album, seen in ‘Of Dust & Matter’, which begins with the sound of radio static, and in which singer Hazel Wilde’s vocals build to a thrilling Siouxsie Sioux holler.” Uncut – 7/10

“Lanterns On The Lake continue to maintain their commitment to producing high quality soundscapes with a unique sensibility. Beings is haunting and delicate, a truly excellent work, that rarely falters.” The Skinny – 4 Stars ****

“One of Britain’s most crucial bands of the present moment.” Drowned In Sound – 8/10
