From the top floor of the old Templeton Carpet Factory – overlooking Glasgow Green and The People’s Palace, designed with muscular 19th century industrial ambition to look like the Doge’s Palace in Venice – Laki Mera had a great view of their future.

In the studio space they’d christened Carrier Waves, the Glasgow band were working on their second album, ‘Turn All Memory To White Noise’: the majestic, intimate, spine-tingling and heart-stopping follow up to The Proximity Effect. As they worked on an album that artfully fuses electronics, strings, found sounds, ear-worm melodies and Laura Donnelly’s bewitching voice, the praise for their 2011 debut rang in their ears …

The Sunday Times: Wonderful debut album… creat[ing] a dense folktronic architecture with an intricacy and subtlety that recalls the Blue Nile, Cocteau Twins and Portishead

The Daily Record: “One of the most promising intelligent pop acts Scotland has produced this decade

Drowned in Sound: “This is how it should be done … the most confident debut I’ve heard in a long while. It has the calm authority of musicians who know exactly what they want to do, are prepared to work stupid hours to realise and perfect it

but Laki Mera are not a band to rest on their laurels. They’ve come too far, done too much, experienced too much, to go with the flow of critical approval. Producer/multi-instrumentalist Andrea Gobbi – aside from his “day-job” in Laki Mera, he’s firmly plugged into the Scottish folk scene as an engineer, a decade after relocating from Italy – admits that they had firm ideas from the outset for the band’s second album.
