'This underrated artist is a titantic talent' – The
'Smart lyrics, tasteful synth and a distinct New Zealand accent' – The Wild Honey Pie

'Wellington | Te Upoko O Te Ika' is an album that explores one person's interpretation of place. A web app has been created to allow people to listen to the songs in the places they sing about. You can experience Lake South's 'Wellington' now, here:

Instead of physical albums, a set of 11 postcards will be available at live shows. Each postcard represents a song/place/sentiment.
