Last year TFN highlighted Lakes in our Artists of the Week feature. We are happy to see the Watford based six-piece ensemble prepping for the release of their new album Start Again which will out on July 30th via Know Hope Records (US), Big Scary Monsters (UK) and Friend Of Mine Records (Japan). The new video for “Matches” is their second single from their forthcoming new record.
‘Matches’ is an exploration of political division, set to a backdrop of glistening guitars, a driving melody and the band’s signature harmonised dual lead vocals. “Watching the way political discourse has played out over the past few years and the tension that comes with polarising views – it’s exhausting. No one wants to be proven wrong.” says co-lead singer Roberto Cappellina. “There’s a need for space to have real conversations with each other and to listen. This song is about reaching out to have those conversations.”
