Premiere: The Magic Lantern – Holding Hands

magic lantern music

Jamie Doe has been spinning trad-folk inflected sonic sorcery under The Magic Lantern moniker for over a decade now.

Born out of the same musical gene pool as Rozi Plain and This Is The Kit in Bristol, the project has known various acoustic incarnations, as a solo outfit, four-piece and now an ensemble.

Over the years, Jamie has flirted with homespun folk, finger-picking ballads and loose jazz, now arriving at a stripped back sound which combines it all.

His first new album since 2014, To The Islands, is currently in the pipes and includes an ensemble drawn from London’s thriving jazz scene.

Ahead of the LP, a taster single, Holding Hands, will drop on 30 October. Wrap your ears around its gorgeous a cappella intro here…
