Lost Horizons

Lost Horizons perform their acclaimed debut album Ojalá live in its entirety for the first time.

Lost Horizons is a collaboration between Simon Raymonde, bassist of the seminal indie-pop trio Cocteau Twins, and Richie Thomas, drummer of post-rock quartet Dif Juz and former drummer of The Jesus and Mary Chain.

The pair first became collaborators and friends in the 1980s, when their bands shared the same record label, 4AD.

Ojalá features an array of talented guest singers, many of whom reunite for this one-off show in Queen Elizabeth Hall.

Featured guests include former Midlake frontman Tim Smith, in his first live performance since 2012, Ghostpoet, Marissa Nadler, Cameron Neal (Horse Thief), Liela Moss (The Duke Spirit), Soffie Viemose (Lowly), Hazel Wilde (Lanterns On The Lake), Phil McDonnell and Gemma Dunleavy.

Ojalá is an hour of rich melancholia, combining ethereal dream pop with elements of soul. Released in 2017, the debut effort won Album Of The Month in Rough Trade's Album Club and was featured as BBC Radio 6 Music’s Album of the Day.

Lost Horizons’ touring line-up includes three vocalists: Ed Riman (aka Hilang Child) and Beth Cannon, who both appear on the album, and Helen Ganya Brown, who records under the alias Dog In The Snow.

Support comes from singer-songwriter Hilang Child and band Penelope Isles who bring melodic fuzz pop with dynamics that will transfix and satisfy.

Supported by Arts Council England.

A diverse collection of quality melancholia by two intuitive veterans with nothing to prove except their ability to create music to invest your soul into.
