Sometimes you find yourself in love with a woman without knowing anything but her voice and name. How would you tell your family about this new mysterious girl? That is exactly how I feel right now. I met Lake Francis, I only know their voice and some basic facts but I’m still totally blown away. We met last night when I was just researching and looking for new Danish upcomings in the underground. There they were.
To be honest I don’t know a lot about them. I don’t know how they met, why they decided to start a noisy rock band nor do I know what they want to achieve with their sound. I don’t know shit.. Yet I still love it like a boy in elementary school talking about “the girl with the curly hair over there..”.
Let me tell you about their sound. Imagine if Sonic Youth sat down and took a chat with Mogwai, flirted with The Raveonettes, hang out with The Doors, laughed with Placebo, drank a beer with The Strokes, was chilling with Joy Division and married War On Drugs.. that is how Lake Francis sound.
Why should you love them you might ask? – Because, why not? The world would be an even better place if you would show some real emotions too. They deserve it. For god’s sack, their forthcoming album is even produced by the producer behind Kurt Vile and the War On Drugs, How can you not fall in love with that?
So far they have only announced one live performance and thus only one chance for you to hear their noisy sounds on the live stage:
11. April – Lake Francis – ‘Tonight is Lost’ release Party @ Drone, CPH
Aarhus bookers – Go Go Go, their forthcoming album is set for release 14.04.2014
Lake Francis – ‘Lost Boy’
