Lakefield/Canada’s Answer to Portishead

As a fan of the Sundays and Portishead, I fell for the clean glass vocals of Lakefield lead singer Kate Rossiter, immediately and hard.The first single “Good Guy” from Swan Songs had me tearing up in 30 seconds. Kate’s gentle, pleading voice against a backdrop of melancholic crescendos and silences made me feel sick. The good kind of sick. The kind that only good music makes you feel. Lakefield writes about love and loss and the cycle that only stops when someone finally stays. Whoever moved the band to write such heartbreaking music should hear “Good Guy”.  Maybe they would come back. Lakefield has a crowded future, if they stay on the scene.
