Emerging from Watford’s impressive DIY scene, six-piece ensemble Lakes are a resplendent slice of positivity, charm and twinkling catharsis that has catapulted them a long way in a short space of time. Inspired by 80s pop rock icons Fleetwood Mac, Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel, and stimulated by the sonic legacies of their scene peers (The Appleseed Cast, TTNG, Broken Social Scene and Bon Iver), in 2019 Lakes released their debut album ‘The Constance LP’, which saw praise from the likes of Rocksound, Brooklyn Vegan, Alt Press and Punktastic — with Washed Up Emo championing the ensemble as “Your new favourite band”.

+ FES…

Three piece Math-Pop est. 2016. Slick tempo changes and repulsively catchy math pop melodies have established the FES as a scene staple in UK and international circles alike.


LLOUIX is an exploration of Lucinda finding themself as the queer non-binary artist they always felt was living inside of them, navigating their transition and taking a well-needed pause after spending a lifetime on the road.
