LANTERNS ON THE LAKE

The Realist EP

bella union



12"

Released: 18th Dec 2020

£14.99


the perfect snapshot of a band whose understanding of engrossing melodies & captivating atmospheres is distilled into 5 songs oozing with dream pop bliss.

Featuring four brand new tracks and a reworked, stripped-back version of the ‘baddies’ single, this is another gorgeous outing from the dream pop bliss merchants. 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.”
