A move south from Alice Springs for childhood friends Bill Guerin, Jack Talbot and Thomas Snowdon saw the birth of Melbourne-based Lowlakes in 2009.
Having played music together since 2005, as The Moxie, the trio’s relocation was a fresh start and spurred the beginnings of a direction change toward the alternative indie-rock scene. The early recruitment of guitarist Brent Monaghan crystallised this transformation. Monaghan’s dream-pop and post-punk tendencies invigorated a new taste for atmospheric sound-scapes that have come to characterise the group’s dark and uplifting compositions.
Artic House is taken from their self titled debut EP, released in March.
