False Lights are a six-piece electric folk group lead by multiple BBC Folk Award winners Sam Carter and Jim Moray. Based in the traditional music of the British Isles, but not constrained by it’s usual modes of performance, they have transcended their original aim to make ‘folk rock for the 21st century’ to become one of England’s most startling and exciting acts.
Their first album, Salvor, gained five star reviews, a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nomination for best album, and copious airplay on BBC Radio2, 6Music and beyond. Now they return with Harmonograph, an even more ambitious and charged set of songs encompassing shapenote hymns, 18th century pirates, blizzards of shoegaze guitars, and pro-EU drinking songs.
