Last Harbour return with “Paler Cities”, a 7″ vinyl release for Gizeh Records which marks the follow-up to 2015’s raw and brooding “Caul” album.
Maintaining the high standards set by Caul, these two new tracks are a more direct version of Last Harbour’s signature form, leaning towards a more stripped back, less textured post-punk sound. K Craig’s voice echoes and cascades through duelling guitars and metronomic beats on the lead track before giving way to slower tones and late-night melody on “The Curved Roa”d, augmented by electric pianos, synths and simple percussion. These new tracks show a progressive band in full force, tapping into themes of city dislocation, mazes and traps. They expertly navigate the intimate and the expansive and document a band still growing, changing and connecting.
“Paler Cities” is released April 1st on limited edition 7″ vinyl complete with two additional bonus, digital-only tracks. Last Harbour tour Europe this April in support of the new single.
