We are delighted to announce that Manchester-based collective Last Harbour have become part of the Gizeh Records roster. The band have been holed up in their own studio finishing a new record, entitled Caul, and we are extremely excited to be releasing it to the world in February.
Based in the northern English city of Manchester, Last Harbour play music that has a dark, gothic heart yet a sound that is always beautiful and transcendent. After working with producer Richard Formby (Wild Beasts, Spacemen 3, Ghostpoet) on two previous albums, the band took time out after touring to build their own studio in 2013. This new album was recorded in that self-created space over a year between 2013-4 and bears testament to a patient and detailed recording process that allowed time for experimentation and careful arrangement.
Caul contains all of the band’s trademark cinematic laments and doom-filled rock, but there is also an added layer of raw, bleak experimentation that marries ideally and simultaneously with brighter, almost joyous moments. The progression on Caul, from that of its predecessor Your Heart, It Carries the Sound, is clear. There is a new focus, a need to explore, a quest to push further into the void.
We will be launching the record with two special shows (and the band's first since 2012) in February.
