Lowlakes music embodies elements special to the band: a sense of other-worldliness and space. Their debut album Iceberg Nerves is a conceptual album that "listeners could escape to" - Tom Snowdon (vocals), one with textures, words and sounds that flow throughout, laced with Snowdon's haunting and soulful vocals, reminiscent of Anthony Hegarty. It's an enveloping, atmospheric creation.
Originally from Alice Springs in the central Australian desert, Lowlakes moved away from the city to record Iceberg Nerves at the boutique Kunsthaus studio in Mount Eliza, on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria (produced by Manfred Kaindel). "Isolation and space is something Lowlakes constantly feeds off. We seem to find more room to think and create when we're away from the city." - Tom Snowdon.
Now the band have relocated once more, to quiet isolation of the Alps in Vorarlberg, Austria to write new material and to play a series of European festivals (and the below UK shows). The dates follow Lowlakes performance at CMJ Music Showcae in NYC in 2012 and their 2013 European tours with Chelsea Wolfe, Chet Faker and Half Moon Run plus their support to the Howling Bells in London.
UK LIVE DATES:
23rd Sept - Rough Trade East (In-Store @ 1pm)
24th Sept - Old Blue Last, London (Communion gig)
26th Sept - Manchester/BETA at Gulivers
Lowlakes are: Tom Snowdon - vocals/guitar, Jack Talbot - drums/percussion, Brent Monaghan - guitar/piano/vocals & Bill Guerin - bass.
The band release Iceberg Nerves in Europe on the 1st September 2014 on Vinyl, CD and Digitally via Kunsthaus/Cargo Records.
