Charlottetown rockers, North Lakes have
recently released their anticipated sophomore album, Grand
Prix, after their debut album, Cobra, which was the winner of
Best Alternative album of 2011 Music PEI Award. Despite the award-winning
effort of their previous work, they've bravely undergone some changes in the
band formation, (they've shed to 5 piece from 6 piece band) and
channeled towards a difference direction by
softening their tone towards raw pop , rather than bluesy rock n roll tunes
that you can find in the debut album. The result is Grand Prix.
album, Grand Prix was produced by Paper Lions' Colin
Buchanan and it is coated with a vigorous 60's garage rock. This single, Baptism In Burgundy, epitomizes
their ability to craft impulsive melody lines with illustrative lyrics, which
radiates the vivacious energy
of the five members. Give it a listen!
