Feeling a bit camera shy


Originally formed as a recording project in Ottawa's frosty Attic Recording Studios, LURE has morphed into a full-on, hard working organism to be reckoned with. Drawing inspiration from groups such as Ween, the Rheostatics, King Cobb Steelie, Balls Falls, umm... maybe some Pink Floyd, and a touch of 70s funk for good measure, LURE has done what every other band always claims to do: yup, you guessed it - they’ve created a sound all their own, and its catchy as hell.

Together since late winter 2004, LURE has gained the attention of the Ottawa music community with its energetic live show and their 7 song EP. "it is what it is" highlights LURE’s notoriously contagious "up"-vibe and hints at their party-style performance and insatiable hunger to one-up themselves. All recordings aside, you have to see this band live.
