Lake South Announces Album Release Tour

Monday 20th February, 2017 12:00PM

Sentimental synth-pop artist Lake South has announced a nationwide tour as he gears up to release his debut album If You're Born On An Island The Ocean Heals You next month. Since the dissolution of his former project UrbanTramper, Lake South has shared a handful of poignant singles starting with 'Good Keen Man' in 2014, which was followed by 'Binge Drinking And D.H. Lawrence' and 'Renters'. For the six-date trek Lake South will be performing as a two-piece with the inclusion of bassist/vocalist Seamus Maguire, and there are some fantastic support acts already lined up. Here are the details...

PRESS RELEASE:

Lake South Album Release Tour
If You’re Born On An Island The Ocean Heals You - out March 14 on Home Alone Music.

Lake South is touring Aotearoa in March and April to promote his debut album If You're Born On An Island The Ocean Heals You. From Auckland to Dunedin, Lake will perform his unique blend of chill-synth-pop live, as a two piece, with bassist/vocalist Seamus Maguire.

In 2014, Lake released ‘Good Keen Man’, his first single since the dissolution of his long-term project Urbantramper. The “downbeat anthem for the disillusioned” earned a VNZMA Critics’ Choice nomination and a place on the Apra Silver Scroll long list.

Since then, Lake has been playing sporadic shows and working on the new album with Auckland producer Joshua Lynn. The album will feature ‘Good Keen Man’ along with indie radio/blog favourites ‘Renters’ and ‘Binge Drinking & D.H. Lawrence (feat. Nadia Reid)’.
