Biography

Newcastle-upon-tyne, United Kingdom (2007 – present)

Lanterns On The Lake is a five-piece indie rock band from Newcastle-upon-tyne, United Kingdom. Formed in 2007, the band is composed of Hazel Wilde, Paul Gregory, Sarah Kemp, Oliver Ketteringham and Andrew Scrogham.

The band has 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 Gregory, 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.

    God, this album. 5th time playing it now, I really really enjoy it. It reminds me of "Push The Heart" by a band called Devics from Cali. I'd seriously recommend that to people too.

    Elodie is an incredibly great opener. Really enjoying the new album, though I prefer Gracious Tides. Also thanks to several previous posters for mentioning their Bandcamp page, just bought the 3 EPs :)

    Nice to see these guys have gained quite a lot of recognition - remember seeing them when they supported The Pains of Being Pure at Heart in 08/09 at Newcastle, they were really nice guys as well. Fantastic then, fantastic now!
