Created for the BBC podcast Uncanny, in which The Battersea Poltergeist’s Danny Robins investigates “real-life stories of paranormal encounters”, Lanterns On The Lake have shared new song ‘Don’t Have Nightmares’.
“Danny and his producer Simon were keen for us to create something simple that would fit the themes of the series and send a shiver down your spine,” Hazel Wilde explains. “Lyrically, I was trying to come up with something that could cover the range of unique stories and link them all. Each episode and story is different. Some include ghosts, UFOs, poltergeists and some even touch on mental health. So I wrote it from the point of view of someone being haunted by their experience. The thought/ memory of what they’ve experienced behaves like a ghost in a way. We wanted the music to get under your skin if you were listening on headphones to the podcast. We included subtle footsteps as the percussion for the song and piano sound is warped to give it that otherworldly, unnerving feel.”
