Based in Manchester, Last Harbour are an expansive collective featuring an array of classical instrumentation as well as guitar, bass and drums. From dusty laments to doom-filled rock, from starkly beautiful duets to drifting clouds of looped noise, there's always an intensity that strikes hard.

SUNDAY TIMES: "Magnificent."

MOJO: "[Last Harbour] exhibit so much literary dexterity and multi-instrumental skill you feel almost duty-bound to surrender."

UNCUT: "Bewitching."

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

ARTROCKER: "The final frontier of funeral pop."

METRO: "Classic outback brooding recalling the deathly pallor of contemporary Australians The Drones."

CLASH: "A dark and dusty mood, perfectly realised."

Last Harbour have toured and played with; Willard Grant Conspiracy, Dirty Three, Josh T Pearson, Michael Gira (Swans), Devendra Banhart, Black Heart Procession, Mark Mulcahy, & more.
