Lost Harbours

Lost Harbours were formed in 2007 out of suburban ennui and the Southend-on-Sea DIY scene. They meld folk themes with the abstract possibilities of noise in an attempt to create an escapist moment - a living dream to dwell within momentarily. Since this genesis there have been frequent forays to stages across the United Kingdom and Europe, their sound has traveled from Finland, through the Baltics to Poland and Germany. Along the way this odyssey has allowed them to share stages with Mirrorring (Grouper / Tiny Vipers), Boduf Songs, Jessica Bailiff, The Dead Rat Orchestra, The Owl Service, Kemper Norton and Library Tapes. Two full albums and many EP's have been recorded and disseminated in a variety of formats. These have received plaudits from the likes of The Quietus, Julian Cope, The Liminal, Norman Records, Foxy Digitalis, Heathen Harvest, Evening of Light and Gloom Folk. They have sound-tracked the documentary Lead / Light, the poetry piece: Public Record: Estuary - the work of writer Justin Hopper which was commissioned especially for the Shorelines 2013 festival by Rachel Lichtenstein and improvised live soundtracks for screenings of several Kenneth Anger films. http://www.lostharbours.com Read more on Last.fm.
