Lake South Release Wellington | Te Upoko O Te Ika
Home Alone Music is proud to present Lake South’s sophomore long-player Wellington | Te Upoko O Te Ika.
Wellington was mostly recorded on the East Coast’s Whanarua Bay with multi-instrumentalist and instrument maker Phill Jones. It also features piano from Ben Tolich (Mali Mali), backing vocals from Penelope Eslplin (Grawlixes, French for Rabbits), and drums from Boycrush’s Alistair Deverick. The video for the first single South Coast is out now.
As a visual accompaniment to the album, there are postcards for each track. These ‘wish you were here’ letters to the listener offer hints at the sentiment imbued within the songs.
Wellington | Te Upoko O Te Ika (HAM026) is available digitally on Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, etc. from August 2nd. Physical CDs/postcards can be purchased from Bandcamp and at shows.
The album follows the release of 2017’s If You're Born On An Island The Ocean Heals You.
