Bio

Mountain Lakes exists to observe how we perceive and experience life. Everything is balanced with reflection and in music we can find liberation.

The band started after Wayne travelled from England across Europe and settled in Warsaw, Poland. Travelling enables us to be detached from our daily routine and see the world with open eyes. Wayne develops the music, concepts and production to reflect this feeling of rational observation. The wandering electronic rhythms are embellished by the Polish section of the band. Guitarist Kuba brings a harmonious expanse and vocalist Joanna delivers a breath of clarity. Mountain Lakes are an electronic music trio formed in Warsaw, Poland in 2014. The band was created after Wayne travelled from Midhurst, England across Europe for 6 months encompassing 14 countries and settled in Warsaw. Wayne required an eye operation and formed the band while waiting for the operation. In England and whilst travelling Europe with his laptop he worked on his music which is influenced by trip-hop, hypnotic electronica and post-rock. Travelling enables us to be detached from our daily routine and see the world with open eyes. Wayne develops the music, concepts and production to reflect this feeling of rational observation. Music and lyrics were written while observing the world from trains, buses or park benches and sometimes the ambient sounds and daily events made their way into the music. The wandering electronic rhythms are embellished by the Polish section of the band. Guitarist Kuba brings a harmonious expanse and vocalist Joanna delivers a breath of clarity. The name Mountain Lakes comes from the Salvador Dali painting ‘Mountain Lake’ which is in the Tate Modern. It shows a lake which can also be viewed as a fish and a disconnected telephone which depicts the breakdown of negotiations before WW2. Mountain Lakes exists to observe how we perceive and experience life. Everything is balanced with reflection and in music we can find liberation. A mountain is a constant against the ever-changing landscapes around them. It observes. A lake is not a static body of water. It is slowly changing according to the environment. It experiences. The band takes inspiration from many sources for example: Radiohead, Autechre, Miles Davis, Mogwai, Massive Attack, George Orwell, J.G Ballard, Ayn Rand, Naomi Klein, Noam Chomsky, Salvador Dalì, Pablo Picasso, Leonardo Da Vinci, Stanley Kubrick, Darren Aronofsky & Danny Boyle. Currently the band are preparing for their first live concerts which will include visuals related to the band’s concepts and inspirations. Recording for their debut album will commence soon and they also have a plan for an art installation.
