A short form album and possible swan song (for the time being at least) for this unique dulcimer-led collective featuring members of Hood, Brave Timbers and Manyfingers. 'Phantom Lights' moves on from the marvellous sweeping 'The Nearest Exit' LP with a pick and mix example of what this band are good at.

The group continue to manipulate their dulcimer, guitar and violin sound into inventive new shapes and on the title track create their most vibrant moment yet. As with all Memory Drawings releases there is a remix - this time from brilliant Bristol based electronic composer Barnaby Carter.
