  • Description

    Studio album from the Triple BBC Best Group Folk Award winners. Features their Beatles cover as a bonus track (Dear Prudence ). Re-released in a digi pack on Reveal Records, now at cheaper price.

    This generation's most inventive folk band return with highly anticipated new album 'Arc Light'. LAU are a formidable trio of three of the finest & most innovative exponents of modern traditional music in Britain today. A collection of both traditional and self-penned songs which highlight their unique take on folk music. Highly regarded musicians in their own right, the combined talents of Kris Drever, Martin Green and Aidan O'Rourke make for a fantastic and all-conquering trio. Lau employ rising, epic song structures not usually associated with Folk music and more akin to those on the leftfield of rock and jazz.

    'Creative and genre bursting' **** The Scotsman

    'Balancing frenzied hi-octane moments with those of aching beauty. 'a combined sense of style, adventure and fun that turns the album into an utter corker' Telegraph 'Lau are so special' **** The Guardian

    'Lau are one of the most exciting new acts in years' Songlines 5/5

    "...quite frankly the best band in the world right now". Channel 4 Music
