Biography

Management: Manfred Kaindel
Publishing: Kunsthaus Music
Label: Kunsthaus Records

Intimate, haunting, and swirling with atmospherics, Lowlakes’ music has a sense of the cinematic. Their marriage of shoegaze, alternative and dream-pop is dark with imagery of midnight, wintry landscapes, punctuated by bone-chilling waves of frontman Tom Snowdon’s voice.

Originally hailing from Alice Springs in the central Australian desert, childhood friends Snowdon, Bill Guerin and Jack Talbot formed Lowlakes with Brent Monaghan in 2011 after relocating to Melbourne.

Lowlakes made waves with the release of their 2012 eponymous EP, performing at the prestigious CMJ Music Festival in New York in October 2012, and tours of Europe in May and October 2013 where they supported the likes of Chet Faker, Chelsea Wolfe and Half Moon Run.

Lowlakes' debut album, Iceberg Nerves, was released in February 2014 and was followed by a headline tour of Europe. The band will feature at a number of music festivals across Europe in the second half of the year as part of a follow up tour for their album.

 



Lyrics

Artic House

Written By: Thomas Snowdon,Brent Monaghan,Jack Talbot,Bill Guerin

Hang my head out
Of your bedroom
Cos I'm human, in the Arctic,
Cos I'm breathing

With your finger
Part my hair, and
Leave me chained out,
Cos I'm human, in the Arctic

I was not yours
But you shed me,
Shed me over,
Shed me over in the Arctic

Would you believe it If I said,
Said I was only passing through?
Would you believe it if I said,
Said I was only passing?
When the forest found me
I was lying to myself
Would you believe it If I told it to you?

Make your finger
Part with my hair,
Leave a mark there,
Let it break you in the Arctic

I've been trying,
Building oceans
That might catch you,
That might drown you,
Find me forest

Would you believe it If I said,
That I was only passing through?
Would you believe it if I said,
Said I was only passing?
When the forest found me
I was lying to myself
Would you believe it?
Would you believe it?
Would you?

Bone crusher, would you believe it?
Would you believe it?
Would you believe it?
My Bone crusher, would you believe it?
Would you believe it?
Would you believe it?

I was born in your blood
Drop your fingers
Make a part
I was born in your blood
Drop your fingers
Find me forest

Bone crusher, would you believe it?
Would you believe it?
Would you believe it?
You're my Bone crusher, would you believe it?
Would you believe it?
Would you believe it?
You're my Bone crusher, would you believe it?
Would you believe it?
Would you believe it?
You're my Bone crusher, would you believe it?
Would you believe it?
Would you believe it?

Song For Motion

Written By: Thomas Snowdon,Brent Monaghan,Jack Talbot,Bill Guerin

My arms are made with paper

All those blood-suckers
Flew straight over you
All those blood-suckers
Drinking in my roof

I’ve been waiting;
It’s been so long;
Started changing;
Started sober

I’ve been waiting;
It’s been so long;
Find me changing;
Find me somewhere
