Lowlakes - Buffalo - Internet Download
A move south from Alice Springs for childhood friends Bill Guerin (bass), Jack Talbot (drums), and Thomas Snowdon (vocals, guitar) saw the birth of Melbourne-based Lowlakes in 2009.

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.

About this track...

Buffalo is a thoughtful union of ambient, mood-setting textures, layered with shimmering guitars and gliding choral hooks. Angelic atmospherics are guided by a driving yet discreet rhythmic undertow. This carries decorative vocal licks and some tasteful trumpet through gentle structural shifts.
