Lanai “Ship’s Bell” – Listen

Lanai are Tanja Torvikoski and Petri Kuusela, who make a very soft folk-rock sound: that’s soft as in gentle as epitomised on this track which floats through sea-mists towards a feeling of loss and parting.  This is actually the title track of the Finnish duo’s new and debut album which was released at the start of March and which, as befits such ethereal folk sounds, was of course recorded in a suitably remote cabin – you can hear the chill.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
