The Newcastle sextet heads a very strong line-up at The Harley this week. They mix beautiful folk melodies with subtle electronic infusions to create something rather wonderful. Delicate, delightful and utterly hypnotic. Support comes from the Merseyside minstrel, Laura J Martin, employing her vocals, a loop pedal, a flute and whatever else comes to hand. The cherry on top being our very own sickeningly talented favourites, Cats:For:Peru.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEsNlpSk_RsLanterns on the Lake-Lungs Quicken
