Sparkling Song from Lanterns on the Lake

beliefsThis song from Lanterns on the Lake rules so hard that my only complaint is that it went on just a wee bit longer. Hazel Wilde’s performance on this track is stunning, yet it has this innocence to it that reminds me of Amy Millan in varying moments. Musically, you’ll find all sorts of layers to the tune. At first your focus is on the stick work at play, but eventually the guitars start to draw you in, unfolding in bursts like only the best post-rock’s here when the drums take on a stronger machine-gun effect. All these signs point to a strong release for the band’s new record, Beings, which will hit this Friday via Bella Union.
