Free Music Friday! Lanterns on the Lake - "Keep On Trying"

Fuse the most fragile and graceful end of the folk music spectrum to the most luminous properties of cinemascope rock, and you have the stunning debut album from Newcastle-based sextet Lanterns On The Lake. Following two rapturously received EPs, Gracious Tide, Take Me Home warrants the use of often over-played adjectives such as "celestial", "swooning" and "absolutely bloody gorgeous." For an album debut, that's something special, because most bands don't reach such an exalted plateau until they've had years to mature.
