MELTING VINYL PRESENTS: LAU
Named after an Orcadian word meaning ‘natural light’ (although deliberately misspelled it from ‘lowe’), Lau, made up of British and Scottish musicians, formed in 2005 and were quickly hailed as a band of rare innovation and invention.
Widely regarded as at the epicentre of the new-folk boom, the band consists of Martin Green (accordion and electronics), Aidan O’Rourke (fiddle, fx) and Kris Drever (vocals, guitars). For a decade Lau have been stretching folk music’s boundaries further and exploring new musical territory with each release and concert tour.
Expect an expansive ensemble sound buzzing with pop, improvisation, electronica and classical influences.
