Lanterns On The Lake | The Realist EP
Includes download code
Following their Mercury Prize nomination, and having recently been featured in The Guardian, Lanterns On The Lake present a new 5-track, ‘The Realist EP’, via Bella Union.
The EP includes four brand new tracks as well as a new reworked stripped-back arrangement of the single ‘Baddies’.
Of the track and EP vocalist Hazel Wilde says: “‘The Realist’ is a song about being a dreamer, clinging to a vision and following your heart - even when that path can seem deluded to others. It was one of the songs that didn’t make it onto the album ‘Spook The Herd’ as it didn’t fit sonically or narratively. It felt like it came from another place. So we began putting together this EP. We wanted to sculpt an intimate ‘headphones’ record. One for the introverts and dreamers, the ones that still find beauty and magic in things. Recording some of the songs over lockdown in our homes helped in creating that world.”
