“As the door swung to lintel and the line became tight
I caught the man’s orders and swam to the light
Nobody knows when you’ll go and no-one thinks to tell you”
I originally started listening to Lau about four years ago. Their traditional fiddle medleys would always inspire me to pick up my violin and play.
More recently they have transitioned into experimental folk music, and I love it. They seamlessly, beautifully, incorporate strings into their music and have stunning lyrics.
Here is a relatively new song: The Bell that Never Rang by Lau. The build up at the end has me pressing replay over and over.
