Second EP further showcases Edinburgh trio's diversity

Edinburgh-based folk trio Lau are set to release part two in a series of three EPs that showcase the different influences upon their sound. ‘Ghosts’ draws attention to their more electronic and experimental leanings, and was the result of a collaboration with Domino-signed producer and artist Adem.

The pairing seems an obvious choice – what with Adem being just as comfortable performing delicate acoustic guitar laments as he is building doof-doof techno-pop beats. In addition to his solo work under his own name, Adem also plays bass alongside Kieran ‘Four Tet’ Hebden in recently-resurrected post-rock outfit Fridge. In addition to this, makes big, throbbing, euphoric electro-pop with Johnny Lynch as the duo Silver Columns .

Adem had been a fan of Lau’s music since attending their sell-out show at Edinburgh Queens Hall in 2009 and worked out they shared connections via engineers, fellow musicians and mutual friends on the Scottish music scene.

Lau – who are made up of Kris Drever (guitar, vocals), Martin Green (accordion, piano) and Aidan O’Rourke (fiddle) went down to Adem’s London studio last year to record the ‘Ghosts’ EP.

To mark the release of the Lau Vs Adem EP, The List has an exclusive download on a Silver Columns remix of one of the new tracks.

'Ghosts' will be available from the 23rd May via Lau Music.
