Luminous Bride EP
edition 10" vinyl & download
Release date: 25th May 2009
This 10” vinyl EP (limited to just 350
copies) features one of the standout songs from the Dead
Fires & The Lonely Spark album, plus three
others from the same sessions that are equally beautiful
but also bleaker and heavier in mood. They’re the perfect
uncomfortable bedfellows on a record that takes the
warning fables of Edgar Allen Poe and weds them to music
of dark passion and fervour.
PRESS: CHANNEL 4 PLANET SOUND A dark,
drunken waltz, Kevin Craig's cavernous vocals out-gloom
Tindersticks as the mournful strings kidnap your soul.
Equally grimy and gorgeous. 8/10. // DIE SHELLSUIT DIE
"Sounds how Bon Iver might if they only played at wakes.
[It] crackles with revolutionary vitriol and melancholy."
// GOD IS IN THE TV "It is impossible not to fall in love
with vocalist K Craig's apocalyptic tone. Last Harbour are
in touch with the old Manchester, channelling the ghosts
of the industrial age, a gloom that predates 'Closer' and
'Unknown Pleasures' by a century and a half."
