Lonelady – Hinterland: Exclusive album stream

Have a listen to the excellent second album from Manchester’s Lonelady and let us know your thoughts

Julie Campbell, who operates as Lonelady, hails from Manchester. You can certainly hear it in her music, which references the northern post-punk sound that birthed a Certain Ratio and Joy Division. Yet Lonelady’s second album Hinterland is far more than just a retread of her home city’s past. Campbell adds 80s pop melodies to the mix on Groove It Out, and a striking cello line runs through the title track. The various influences take what could have been a series of stark sonic landscapes and transform them into vibrant, danceable creations.

It’s already one of our favourite albums of 2015. Have a listen, and let us know your thoughts.

Preorder Hinterland on iTunes.
