Out on record store day (April 6th) is the latest single from prolific Nottingham indie poppers Lorna. The six piece release the three track release, Wayne Mills, ahead of their sixth album ‘London’s Leaving Me’, which is due out later in the year on Minnesota record label Words On Music. Recorded in the bands home studio in Nottingham, Wayne Mills features Andy Mellon (Bellowhead, Damon Albarn) on trumpet, and is backed by the previously unreleased ‘Viktor Tsoi lives on’ and a version of the lead track recorded direct to vinyl on Jack White’s 1940’s vocal booth at Third Man Records in Nashville
Its classic Belle & Sebastian like indie pop fit from the off. Its got this dreamy melancholy about it, as the male / female vocals build up a heady mix of sweetness and sadness, aided and abetted by sweeping picked guitar riffs and and a healthy dose of strings. Come on, just try not to like this one.
