Lights on Moscow was made by Newcastle-Upon-Tyne near neighbours Hazel Wilde (Lanterns on the Lake) and Justin Lockey (Editors, Minor Victories) etc. But it was ages ago that they bunkered down in Seaton Sluice or wherever to record this and they've only just got round to releasing it. And it's really short at just 15 minutes but opener 'Lord Let Me Know' immediately suggests that this could be a project to stand up alongside their other bands. It's slowly unfurling big music led by Spector-ish drum beats and acres of guitar noise something like Spiritualized over which Wilde's eerily whispered vocals take centre stage. 'I Must Come Clean' sounds much like something Portishead might have come up with had they had only access to detuned guitars. The final two tracks sit at either end of the sonic spectrum, 'Like Lovers Often Will' is dark and grimy and dirty whilst 'Sprits Around My Bed' is glacial and somewhat perhaps like Lanterns on the Lake.
It's a promising start for a duo who though best known for other things, have managed to come up with something very special here.
