Population Four signaled the first major change, in the lineup of Cranes, with the departure of bassist Cope. Jim Shaw stepped, from behind the drums, to take over lead guitar duties in full, Francombe switched to bass, while new member, Manu Ros, settled behind the drum kit. The band is ultimately the most conventional it’s ever been, on Population Four. In this album, Cranes continue a change, strongly evident in Loved from the stark and enigmatic vocals of Alison Shaw, and their more synthesized sounds to acoustic guitars and standard drums. Available on vinyl for the first time, as a limited pressing of 1500 individually numbered copies, on blue and white swirled vinyl. The package includes an insert.
