'THE LONG LOST' LIVE!

The Long Lost consists of husband-&-wife team Alfred (Voice, Guitar) and Laura Darlington (Voice, Flute) who will be joined on stage for their live dates by Amir Yaghami (Violin) & Jonathan Larroquette (Electronics) aka electronic duo Jogger. In contrast to the avant-electronics and hip-hop aesthetics of Alfred's music as Daedelus, The Long Lost is a sublime union of two songwriters & producers with a penchant for sad sounds and delicate, electro-acoustic melodies - psychedelic lullabies for lovers and lovelorn.

When they take the stage, the quartet exude a gentle strength, the violin entwining with Laura's voice, the strength of their performance lying in understatement and controlled musicianship rather than any showing off. It's a perfectly judged evocation of their music, utterly lacking in guile and full of the queasy, wonderful, sometimes awful emotions which overwhelm us when we're in Love.
