Lanterns – Back Again Back Again
Sydney Folk/Beats producer/singer Lanterns has just dropped his latest, and it’s lush. A slice of unadulterated Pop-Joy as far as the vocals go, his production on it is spectacular, from the chopped vox, to the handclaps, he’s really coming on, following on from his previous banger nicely. In a crowded Vocal Beats/Electronica world, to my ears, he’s got that something that lifts him above the pack. This particular tune brings to mind one of my all time musical heroes, Erlend Oye, of Royksopp, Kings Of Convenience and The Whitest Boy Alive, something about his intonation and pop sensibility.
To back up these stellar recordings, Lanterns will be performing live to Air on FBi Radio this Wednesday from 1pm, which you can attend if your in the neighbourhood of Kings Cross Hotel at the same time. He also performs a headline show at The Brighton Up bar (77 Oxford St Darlinghurst) the following night.

Thursday 10th October 8pm – Brighton Up Bar, 77 Oxford St, Darlinghurst.
