LAKE, who recently released The World Is Real [KLP246] (their fourth full-length LP on K), also has a lustrous 7″ single called “You Are Alone” [IPU127], which is finally back in stock in the K Mail Order Department!
Eli Moore and Ashley Eriksson‘s radiant songwriting chemistry is on display on both sides of the “You Are Alone” 7″ single.. Recorded by Tucker Martine before Oh, The Places We’ll Go [KLP196], Let’s Build a Roof [KLP213], Giving and Receiving [KLP228] and The World Is Real [KLP246] this single represents the fluidity of sounds that LAKE operates with: both songs are hopeful in different ways – “You Are Alone” (featuring Moore‘s sympathetic voice and calm keys) is a hand on your shoulder, and “Higher Than Merry” (featuring Eriksson‘s contagious glee and a kaleidoscope of percussions, horns, and animal sounds) is a hand that pulls you into a Technicolor dream. Known to change tempos and styles on an album, LAKE throws a sharp curve-ball for this edition of K‘s International Pop Underground series of 7″ singles. Your hand makes the transition; flipping Side A to Side B is like opening a letter from a familiar friend: insightful and cheerful.
Note: In addition to the vinyl 7″, “You Are Alone” is also available as part of the LAKE Digital Bundle Pak!
