More information about Paul Thomas Saunders tickets

With support from - Charlie Cunningham

In 2010 Saunders self-released his debut EP, Four Songs in Twilight, the result, he says, of "impromptu recording sessions in the middle of the night" using just a computer and a microphone. His new EP, Lilac and Wisteria, features five more such nocturnal interludes during which you are warned not to be seduced by the pleasant, somnolent atmosphere. On Wreckheads and the Female Form he sings about "body bags" and "cross hairs", while on lead track Appointment In Samarra he warns: "The blood is on your hands, the body's on the ground."

On Good Times, Rags and Requiems, over echoey, delay-drenched and reverb-washed ambience, he sings of death and longing. Silhouettes of an English Rose is another slow, stately hymn for her, whoever she is. Finally, there's Here Lies Soleil, So Long – and what a title that is. So Morrissey wasn't the last literate British songsmith, and Noel Gallagher didn't siphon off all the poesy. We wouldn't agitate for po-faced feyness per se, but when it's done right, and the context is as beautifully balanced as this, we'd take requiems and silhouettes over cigarettes and alcohol any day.

"With ethereal guitars, haunting harmonies, wide reverb and tingling folk sounds he marks a new development for Leeds music" – The Leeds Guide.
