Based in the Northern English city of Manchester, Last Harbour play honest, heartfelt music that moves from dusty laments to doom-filled rock, from starkly beautiful duets to drifting clouds of looped ambience. There is a dark, gothic heart to the band yet their music is always beautiful and transcendent.


UNCUT (UK): "Melancholic and cinematic, like Scott Walker re-ordering Bowie's 'Heroes'"

MOJO (UK): "So much literary dexterity and instrumental skill you feel duty-bound to surrender."

THE SUNDAY TIMES (UK): "Magnificent. A collection of songs that should appeal to anyone enamoured of Tindersticks and Mark Lanegan.”

RIFRAF (BE/NL): "An intense listening experience."

MAGIC (FR): "Dark and mysterious, for fans of The Bad Seeds and Arab Strap."

DROWNED IN SOUND (UK): "Rich and foreboding, tracing a thread back to the post-industrial soundscapes of Joy Division."

ARTROCKER (UK): “A spacious, intimate and hypnotic affair, reminiscent of Iggy Pop’s ‘Preliminaries’ with a nod to Timber Timbre.”

METRO (UK): “Classic outback brooding that recalls the deathly pallor of contemporary Australians The Drones."

PLAN B (UK): "Swooning dustbowl baroque, blackly turbulent like 16 Horsepower or Lift To Experience."
