Heart Of Wire

Lorna have now finished the recording and mixing of their fourth album, tentatively entitled ‘Heart Of Wire’.   It will be released once again by words on music in the autumn.   The album was recorded at the band;s home studio in Nottingham and features 8 new original tracks as well as a cover of ‘Whose Idea; originally by the brilliant For Stars.    The album continues the tradition of summery indie-pop music but moves away from the more folk/country-inspired material and into more groove-based influences such as Stereolab, Kraftwerk and The American Analog Set.

The album will be accompanied by a series of live shows in the Autumn.   A trailer for the album will be posted very shortly.
