‘Arloedthes a’n Lydn’ – ‘Lady Of The Lake’ in English – is coupled with ‘Darallow’ and is released digitally via iTunes and all usual platforms on Friday 6 July.
The track is taken from the Redruth band’s new album, The Saving Of Cadan, a triple-vinyl / double-CD concept work which has been four years in the making.
The songs are all there to try and tell parts of a story,” says frontman Ben Harris. “The story is about a boy, Cadan, who tries to drown himself in a lake on Carn Marth and gets saved by a wicked spirit who was cursed to the lake – The Lady of the Lake or Morwenna.”
Rooted in traditional folk, the album draws on a wide range of sources, arriving in the 21st century via psychedelia, post-punk and alt-rock.
