Lau vs. Adem

Triple BBC Folk Award winners (Best Group 2008,2009,2010) Lau have long since been known for their forward-thinking and adventurous, non-traditional approach to folk music so teaming up with avant garde producer and electronic artist Adem (Domino Records) was a natural step for them as artists when they decided to make a series of three EP’s showcasing the different influences to their sound. ‘Ghosts’ – the second of the EPs – is released on the 23rd May via Lau Music.

Adem had been a fan of Lau’s music since attending their sell out show at Edinburgh Queens Hall in 2009 and they had numerous links via engineers, fellow musicians and artist friends on the Scottish music scene. The EP was recorded at Adem’s London studio. A short film of the recording sessions is available:

The series of three EP’s includes the now sold out Lau vs Karine Polwart ‘Evergreen’ and will conclude with ‘Trad EP’ which is due for release after their next studio album in 2012.

The band are one of the busiest on the UK music scene, seemingly constantly on tour through UK, Europe and beyond. In June of 2011 they will debut a huge new Orchestral work with Northern Sinfonia at The Sage, Gateshead before recording their next full length album.
