- Nerd, TV/film junkie and music enthusiast. For me nothing is better then drinking warm British lager listening to live music, be it in a hot sweaty venue or in a muddy field during festival season. Delighted to be bringing a British twist to PureGrainAudio!

Truth be told, Lanterns comes across as really quite generic in its sound and, after several listens through, I still struggle to pick anything that stands out from the crowd.
