LAKE are an experimental-pop ensemble centered around the songwriting partnership of wife/husband duo Ashley Eriksson and Elijah Moore. The two met and formed LAKE in the progressive Cascadian college town of Olympia, Washington, in 2005. Since Eriksson and Moore decamped from Olympia to the woods of Whidbey Island some years ago, they have only burrowed deeper into this lifestyle, concentrating on their songwriting and art, enabled in part by musical contributions for Adventure Time (Cartoon Network).

LAKE recently celebrated their ten-year anniversary in an unorthodox fashion, performing every song from their catalogue, over ninety songs in a ten-hour plus set. More than ten years on, LAKE have made Forever or Never, their eighth album, which bookends the first decade of the group’s take on the 1970s rock and pop idiom.

Forever or Never is a collection of humanistic songs that explore the complications of moral and spiritual being in a hostile world. Musically, LAKE are, as always, unparalleled in re-imagining and renewing the melodic language of 1970s soft-rock, (think Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan, The Roches, Laura Nyro, etc), implementing jazz-chord voicings, memorable hooks and a wide palette of colorful, inventive instrumentation.

Their latest album „Forever or Never“ is out now on Tapete Records.
