Lanterns On The Lake Announce New 5-track EP “The Realist” Due 11th December via Bella Union + Share Title Track

Following their Mercury Prize nomination, and having recently been featured in The GuardianLanterns On The Lake now announce news of a new 5-track EP, The Realist, released 11th December via Bella Union and available to preorder here.

The EP includes four new tracks as well as a reworked stripped-back arrangement of the single “Baddies”. The band have shared the EP’s title track-

Of the track and EP vocalist Hazel Wilde says: “The Realist is a song about being a dreamer, clinging to a vision and following your heart  – even when that path can seem deluded to others. It was one of the songs that didn’t make it onto the album Spook The Herd as it didn’t fit sonically or narratively. It felt like it came from another place. So we began putting together this EP. We wanted to sculpt an intimate “headphones” record. One for the introverts and dreamers, the ones that still find beauty and magic in things. Recording some of the songs over lockdown in our homes helped in creating that world.”  

Lanterns On The Lake recently announced news of a special reduced-capacity live appearance at the Sage Gateshead on Saturday 7th November, performing their Spook The Herd album in full. Tickets sold out on the first day but passes are available to watch the concert via live stream.
