“You said, do I have hope and I said I don’t… but I do,” riddles Hazel Wilde on the Newcastle band’s fourth album. Surveying the gathering storm, here’s an end-of-the-world address that finds stirring beauty and defiance in humanity’s final acts. To mark the occasion of our album coming out today we are sharing another live session video. ‘Swimming Lessons’ was recorded and filmed live at Blast Studios in Newcastle.

While the songs are Lanterns On The Lake’s’ leanest yet, fusing dreamy pop melodies with Paul Gregory’s soaring post-rock guitar, it’s Wilde’s lyrics that quicken the pulse. On Swimming Lessons, she marvels at “Vincent’s starry night with the colour drained”.

 Blue Screen Beams laments mobile phone addiction, while lead single Every Atom is a potent shot of glorious romanticism.If we are sleepwalking towards apocalypse, Lanterns On The Lake are here to sing us out in style. “The waters are rising/ our leaders unhinged,” sighs Wilde in majestic 3/4 on Before They Excavate. “Let’s break out the good stuff and toast to the end.” .
