Latest review . . . The Lake Poets – ‘April’
Since the beginning of the blog we have been big supporters of The Lake Poets, reviewing their latest singles, EP and even interviewing Martin Longstaff himself – the founding member of the band.
Now we are happy to announce that the alternative folk collective are back with a new song ‘April’ due to be released on the 29th April, via Tiny Lights Recordings.
The single is an emotive and poetic song detailing the complex emotions that comes with love, loss and betrayal. Just like previous singles the main focus of the song is a solo acoustic guitar and Martin’s soft Northern vocals embellished with a chorus of harmonica and strings.
Each line of the song is poignant and provokes raw emotions as well as endearing images, “Life goes on, or so they say, what is life without you in it, anyway”. You will be left moved and oddly tranquil after listening to ‘April’ – it is simply a beautiful song.
CD & 7″ are available to pre-order via The Lake Poets Bandcamp and if you pre-order you will get the B-side for free. Fans of the single keep your eyes peeled for music video for the single, coming in the next few weeks.
