Modern folk music’s most innovative band Lau return with their third album, Race The Loser, on 1 October via Reveal Records. The trio’s captivating live and studio performances have seen Lau pick up three consecutive BBC Folk Awards for Best Group.
Race The Loser was made in Scotland with American producer Tucker Martine (Sufjan Stevens, The Decemberists, Laura Veirs, REM) and pushes Lau’s complex yet accessible sound even further to the outer reaches of folk music, while retaining all the strengths of the original acoustic trio (Kris Drever – vocals/guitar, Martin Green – accordion, Aidan O’Rourke – fiddle).
‘Lau has injected a freshness, vitality, vigour into the UK folk scene’ – BBC
