An incredible way to close out this years Live From Times Square, a wonderfully eclectic line up topped off by a true living legend!
The impressionistic strokes Lanterns make with their music are mirrored in the lyrics too. Poetic and allusive, they allow the words and melodies to run and bleed into each other.
The addition of the violin in their music has always added a folky quality, but this is far from folk as you know it. 'Another Tale From Another English Town' has a melancholy vein running through it and it is intrinsic to their vibe and with the delicate features of Hazel's voice, a dreamy landscape is created where the sea plays a strong thematic role. Hailing from the Newcastle, the North East becomes almost a character within influencing the song geography profoundly.
