Listen to LAKES

Lakes might have chosen an unremarkable yet oft-used moniker but it’s pretty much the only foot the Watford six-piece have put wrong since forming in 2017. Their debut full-length, each track named after a lake, natch, is polished emo for fans of TTNG, Owen, and Into It, Over It. Glockenspiel!
