Serene Lakes

Serene Lakes


Indie, Pop with slight shoegaze undertones.


Hailing from San Francisco, Serene Lakes lay down gentle melodies intertwined with distorted harmonies that will melt your heart and induce feelings of love lost. They have played dozens of shows since 2004 in and around the SF Bay Area and Pacific Northwest, at notable venues such as Cafe Du Nord, Bottom of the Hill, Mezzanine, Chop Suey in Seattle, the CMJ Music Marathon in New York and most recently headlined a show at the Mission Creek Music and Arts Festival in San Francisco. Serene Lakes have played with such bands as Vells (mem. of Modest Mouse), Headphones (mems. of Pedro the Lion and Starflyer 59), Man of the Year, Love Like Fire (ex mems Stratford 4), Crystal Skulls, The Ex Boyfriends, etc... The three-piece recorded a six song demo at John Vanderslice’s renowned San Francisco analog recording studio Tiny Telephone with sound engineer Aaron Prellwitz who was responsible for recording such bands as Sun Kil Moon, alaska! and Hella. This recording has garnered Serene Lakes very positive reviews from print and online magazines such as Performer Magazine, Splendid, Mesh Magazine, Flavorpill etc… They have been played on local college radio stations such as KZSU Stanford and KFJC Foothill, various iTunes radio stations and are also in rotation and on the top of the charts on the award winning internet radio station, Bagel Radio, as well as others. With label interest as well as a full length in the works, the road ahead looks to be a bright one for Serene Lakes.
