SINGLE: The Strange Death of Liberal England – Lighthouse
Carefully written in a seamless fashion, ‘Lighthouse’ plays its colours dark grey colours well. It has a deeply brooding feel. The recorded space between the instruments gives it a chance to swell and reserve its layers, and allows the little charming snippets of its orchestration to chime through, giving an extra spangle to the song. It’s all held together by Adam Woolway’s “distinctive” voice, which is smoothed by the underlying velvety and ethereal backing vocals that add to the whole aura of the song.
In time ‘Lighthouse’ is a real grower, and despite the fact that there’s a misplaced restraint on the potential power of the song, I’m sure they will compensate for this during their live performances.
