The Bell That Never Rang is the eagerly anticipated new CD from the U.K's most musically revered and celebrated folk trio Lau, recorded and produced in Scotland by Brooklyn based artist /prodcuer Joan Wasser (Joan As Police Woman). Lau have picked up four awards for 'Best Group' at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and the individual members have all won multiple awards and recognition for their acclaimed solo works. Lau comprises Kris Drever (vocals, guitar), Martin Green (accordion, wurlitzer, keys, electronics) and Aidan O'Rourke (fiddle) and together they continue to effortlessly bridge the seemingly diametrically opposed worlds of acoustic folk tradition and electronica.
As THE GUARDIAN says of the trio "Lau are a remarkable band - the most musically adventurous trio in British folk exquisite and hypnotic, musicianship at its best." At the heart of the new album lies the epic seventeen-minute, collaborative title track, with The Elysian Quartet. Elsewhere on the album echoes of the downtown New York music scene (inhabited by new album producer Joan Wasser) can be heard influencing Lau's artistic vision. Singer-guitarist Kris Drever's heartfelt lyrics come wrapped in brittle electric guitar, deep soundscapes and haunting string melodies.
