about

Roundelay is LAKE's most cohesive, adventurous, and fully realized record to date with their own brand of sophisti-pop. It is rich, layered, developed, and at times, avant-garde. Odd time-signatures reign without being too mathy, and sprinkles of horn arrangements, grand piano, and pedal steel put the elevator in the new genre they dub from this moment forward, elevator punk.

To summarize the record, "LAKE got heavy!" was exuberantly yelled at a recent gig in their hometown on Whidbey Island, WA. The band agrees that their once lighter sound has drifted into the realm of "rock".

LAKE formed 14 years ago in Olympia, WA. Their song “Christmas Island” is the ending credits theme in popular Cartoon Network show, Adventure Time. Over the years, LAKE has collaborated with Northwest native Karl Blau extensively in the studio and on the road as his back-up band. They released records for historic indie label K (Beat Happening, the Microphones) for 6 years before jumping to German pop and experimental label Tapete/Bureau B for their latest release Forever or Never (2017). In 2020 LAKE is releasing their new album Roundelay with Seattle label OFF TEMPO. They are touring in February with Pinegrove in US and Japan in March and are planning more touring for Fall 2020.

Track Name: She Plays One Chord
So long so long so long so long
Farewell farewell farewell farewell
So long so long so long so long
Farewell farewell farewell farewell

She plays one chord and I find my way around the room
She plays one chord and I find my way around partitions

You've got a lot to tell us
Under fluorescent lights
The air is clear
The moon is bright
With electricity

So long so long so long so long
Farewell farewell farewell farewell
So long so long so long so long
Farewell farewell farewell farewell

She plays one chord
She plays one chord

You've got a lot to tell us
Under fluorescent lights
The air is clear
The moon is bright
With electricity

She plays one chord
She plays one chord
She plays one chord

You've got a lot to tell us
Under fluorescent light
The air is clear
The moon is bright
With electricity
