Yet it was the early recruitment of guitarist Brent Monaghan that crystallised this transformation. Monaghan’s dream-pop and post-punk tendencies invigorated a new taste for atmospheric soundscapes that have come to characterise the group’s dark and uplifting compositions.
Lowlakes' marriage of ambience with alternative, indie, and pop makes for an intriguing combination. Snowdon’s gripping vocal has earned high praise and comparison to the likes of Antony Hegarty (Antony and the Johnsons), Matt Berninger (The National), and Jeff Buckley. Lingering melody that effortlessly skips from haunting baritone to a husky falsetto leads an often rigid and powerful rhythm section with tasteful guitar work finding space somewhere in-between.
Proving more than agreeable to the Melbourne palette, the group have put together a string of successful performances over two years supporting national as well international artists. Lowlakes will launch thier new release in Melbourne on 17th March, Uniting Church 251 High Street Northcote
