Lanterns on the Lake Biography
Lanterns On The Lake are a sextet from Newcastle, UK formed in 2008. The members are connected in different ways; Hazel (vocals, guitar) & Paul Gregory (guitars, electronics) used to be in a band with Ol Ketteringham (drums, piano); Sarah Kemp (violin) and Hazel are old schoolmates; while Adam Sykes (vocals, guitar) and Brendan Sykes (bass) are brothers.
The band released two EPs, 'The Starlight EP' (2009) and 'Misfortunes & Minor Victories' (2010). Budgets being tiny for the EPs, the band borrowed an eight-track recorder and captured every intimate breath and soaring crescendo in their own homes and at an isolated house in Northumberland. Handmade sleeves for both EPs reinforced the self-sufficient approach.
Their début album 'Gracious Tide, Take Me Home' was released on 19 September 2011 through Bella Union . The album was produced by Paul, as he did the band’s first two EPs. Relishing their independence, the band eschewed a recording studio for the album, though the loud bits were done in a basement of a shop in Newcastle.
