Description

"This album sounds magnificent." - SUNDAY TIMES, July 2012
"Like Scott Walker re-ordering Bowie's 'Heroes'." UNCUT, August 2012

Last Harbour's new album 
'Your heart, it carries the sound' (listen 
HERE) was written in an isolated Northumbrian cottage and recorded live in a mid-19th Century church in their hometown of Manchester. The band's expansive sound is perfectly realised on this acclaimed record. From dusty laments to doom-filled rock, from starkly beautiful duets to drifting clouds of textured sound, the only claims they make for their music are that it is honest and heartfelt.

Praise for Last Harbour's records:
ARTROCKER- "The final frontier of funeral pop."
UNCUT- "Semi-orchestral comforts from the same tangled patch of briar as the Bad Seeds and Tindersticks."
CLASH- "A dark and dusty mood, perfectly realised."
DROWNED IN SOUND- "RIch and foreboding, tracing a thread back to the post-industrial soundscapes of Joy Division."
