RALEGH LONG – ISLANDS
(RELEASE: 7TH AUGUST 2015)
“He seems incapable of sitting at a piano and coming up with anything that doesn’t tremble with almost mystical longing” – Guardian (New Band Of The Day)
Islands is the second single from Ralegh Long’s debut album Hoverance, out now on Gare Du Nord records. The album has been well-received, gaining support from BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne and Gideon Coe, BBC Introducing, The Guardian, Clash, Gold Flake Paint and more. Drawing from influences such as Bill Fay, Laura Nyro and Nick Drake, Long has produced a warm and intimate record, bathed in lush orchestral arrangements underpinned by rich piano tones. Long has previously collaborated with the likes of Rose Elinor Dougall and Darren Hayman and written a film score for the BAFTA-nominated Black Pond.
