Gold Lake

Brooklyn band Gold Lake have finished recording what will be their debut album, Years, mixed by Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, The Walkmen, Father John Misty). The genesis of Gold Lake began in Spain when Carlos and Lua met in Carlos' hip night club in Madrid in the midst of the Spanish capital's music scene. Discovering a mutual love of the 60s and 70s bands from the West Coast, the Laurel Canyon bands, as well as the atmospheres Eno created for Bowie in the 70s the two began writing music together. They soon decamped to Brooklyn and started Gold Lake first as a duo, and then transforming into a trio after recruiting Dave on drums. They have toured consistently since their formation playing out in NYC as well as at festivals including LA's Culture Collide Festival, NXNE festival in Toronto, Northside Festival in NY and Austin's SXSW. In addition to supporting the Lumineers and Midlake the band have supported Basia Bulat, Peter and the Wolf, Ivan & Alyosha and Nada Surf. Already garnering attention from the media with radios like KEXP and KCRW playing their music, Spin Magazine premiered their first single calling it “majestic”, and Stereogum premiered their new single, Lovers, saying that it is "a glistening amalgam of intimate vocals and scintillating instrumentation". As well as seeing some great reviews from the likes of Clash Magazine, Filter, Impose, etc... who thought Gold Lake's music is "of Divine Inspiration", "Effortlessly beautiful", "Wow, producer Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes) has done it again. Gold Lake is unreal".
