Turn All Memory to White NoiseLaki Mera is a Scottish dream-pop band fronted by singer Laura Donnelly with electronic musicians Keir Long and Andrea Gobbi.   They follow in the tradition of groups like Beach House and The Cocteau Twins with influences from German electronic bands and authors like Haruki Murakami and Margaret Atwood.  We talk to them about their new album, Turn All Memory to White Noise.

Laura Donnelly: We [Donnelly and Gobbi] broke up whilst recording this album, which was a bit touch and go sometimes, but so definitely there’s some of that in the lyrics as well.

Keir Long: Yeah, we do a lot of reading because it’s raining so much.
Laura Donnelly: We stay in doors.
