The first time I heard ‘Lungs Quicken’, the latest from Lanterns On The Lake, I think I was busy doing other things and didn’t give it enough attention – I certainly remember being less than impressed. I kinda knew I’d done it a bit of a disservice though, so this afternoon I cued it up again, drew the curtains and actually sat down to listen properly.
Sure enough, I’d written it off too early – it’s lovely. A slow burner, and as dreamy and as exquisite as always. I love the crackly intro and the strings. Check it out for yourself below.
And an old favourite – I’ll never get tired of this one.
