Our Song of the Day comes from a video filmed by Baylis Gray at the Lau-Land Festival from 2014. Lau and Anais Mitchell perform a beautiful rendition of Dyin’ Day which featured on her 2012 album Young Man in America, an album inspired by the recession and the uncertainty that it brought with it – as well as the social irresponsibility.
Anais performed with Lau during Lau-Land at the late night Festival Club. Just prior to the festival we interviewed Aidan O’Rourke of Lau, you can read the interview here: Aidan O’Rourke Talks to FRUK about Lau-Land (2014)
You can catch Lau this month on:
August 12 – Komedia, Bath (with support from Beth Porter)
