Based in the Northern English city of
Manchester, Last Harbour play honest, heartfelt music that
moves from dusty laments to doom-filled rock, from starkly
beautiful duets to drifting clouds of looped ambience.
There is a dark, gothic heart to the band yet their music
is always beautiful and transcendent.
UNCUT (UK): "Melancholic and cinematic,
like Scott Walker re-ordering Bowie's 'Heroes'"
MOJO (UK): "So much literary dexterity and instrumental
skill you feel duty-bound to surrender."
THE SUNDAY TIMES (UK): "Magnificent. A collection of songs
that should appeal to anyone enamoured of Tindersticks and
RIFRAF (BE/NL): "An intense listening experience."
MAGIC (FR): "Dark and mysterious, for fans of The Bad
Seeds and Arab Strap."
DROWNED IN SOUND (UK): "Rich and foreboding, tracing a
thread back to the post-industrial soundscapes of Joy
ARTROCKER (UK): “A spacious, intimate and hypnotic affair,
reminiscent of Iggy Pop’s ‘Preliminaries’ with a nod to
METRO (UK): “Classic outback brooding that recalls the
deathly pallor of contemporary Australians The Drones."
PLAN B (UK): "Swooning dustbowl baroque, blackly turbulent
like 16 Horsepower or Lift To Experience."
