Call to protect oceans from plastic and pollution

The songs of Twin Lakes are an absorbing volume of emotional depth. Each melody is a pool in which to drift and drown.

Echoed, haunting guitar intros and dynamic drumming arrive at the ears as if passed through the surface of water, arousing the synapses and inviting you into an immersive sonic landscape.

Shimmering, atmospheric and taut melodies lead you to the edge before some small inflection – a single note or harmonic moment – forces you to dive in.

The aching, nuanced voice of Eddie Garven is the current that draws you beneath.

Born in the suburbs of Newcastle, during downtime for Garven’s other group, Seabellies, Twin Lakes existed in the ether as home recordings of coalesced ideas. But when an offer arrived for Twin Lakes to play a live performance, the singer and guitarist decided that it was time for his project to take the next step.

‘The band was put together after being offered an opening spot at a friend’s show at the Cambridge’, says Garven says. ‘I was a bit hesitant at first as the show was only three weeks away and I had no band organised – and only half a set of finished material.

‘But I thought if I don’t do this now it’ll never happen.’

twin-lakes-Garven brought together a group of accomplished musicians. Twin Lakes sees Garven work with his brother, guitarist and backing vocalist Huw. On bass is Dan Pavez, who plays in a project with Huw called Ornaments. On keys, bass, vocal and engineering/production duties is Jake Graham, who has a Bachelor of Music from Newcastle Conservatorium. On drums is Sean Kelleher, a fellow Seabellies member who is completing a Masters in Music at the Australian Institute of Music.

Twin Lakes is a formidable group of talented artists.

See them play this week at the Treehouse on Belongil, Byron Bay on Thursday.
