“A languorous intoxication decanted from torch tradition, the Velvet’s third album, and the delicate end of ’90s shoegaze
“A seamless blend of Scottish pop, Midwestern blues, dream pop, and post-rock” – Punk Planet
London’s Leaving Me, the fifth record by Nottingham’s Lorna and its fourth on the Minneapolis-based record label Words On Music (The Lucy Show, For Against), finds the sextet offering another matchless collection of earnest, egoless indie-pop featuring the unmistakable voices of husband-and-wife songwriting team Mark Rolfe and Sharon Cohen-Rolfe.
The nine-song album opens with ‘Like Alastair Sim’ – a ballad in which gorgeous melodies steeped with heartfelt optimism unfold at a deliberate pace against a growing soundscape of strings, bells, and sparse electronics using the song’s acclaimed Scottish actor namesake as its thematic guide. Lorna formed in 1997 and have performed with The Psychedelic Furs, Neil Halstead (Mojave 3), Evan Dando, Mark Gardner (Ride), American Analog Set, Midlake, and Pernice Brothers.
