Lights On Moscow release debut single Lord Let Me Know

mail-1Lights on Moscow is a collaboration between Justin Lockey (Editors/ Minor Victories/ Mastersystem) and Hazel Wilde (Lanterns On The Lake)

The pair were living near one another in Newcastle when the songs took shape. However, the creative journey they shared began years before, where the duo originally performed the songs during a trip to New York. In the intermittent years, neither were in the right head space to release the music. Only now, years later do they feel comfortable sharing their music with the world.

“It’s strange how the timing of something can make a difference. We always knew it was something we’d come back to. And now we have” says Wilde of the project. The idea of ‘waiting’ is certainly at odds with an industry obsessed with speed and the present – but the single highlights a timelessness in-keeping with the ethos of the project.

On Lord Let Me Know, Wilde begs the listener to “Give me a sign” set to Lockey’s trademark production sound. The result is full of anguish and beauty. And the single sets the tone for the EP Aorta Songs Pt 1 – which is set for release in October 2018.

Justin Lockey is best known for his work with Editors but is becoming increasingly regarded for this collaborative efforts – most notably on the Mastersystem album, which came out earlier this year.

Lanterns On The Lake are a critically acclaimed act who have released 3 studio albums though Bella Union.

Lord Let Me Know is released on Friday 24th August Via Physical Education
