This is clearly reflected in Lake Jons’ sound; they use samples, simple and driving rhythms, delicate guitar progressions and powerful, soulful vocals as the pillars of their sound. Exploring themes of introspection, existentialism, and human relationships, the lyrics detail a quieter existence. A calm and persistent “life will go on” motif is prevalent throughout their first full-length album Lake Jons, out January 19th on AntiFragle Music.
For their self-titled debut album, Lake Jons retreated to an isolated cabin deep into the Finnish forest during the few summer months of the year that the Nordic country thaws out. The cabin had no running water, and no inside bathroom. It’s there, in a state of severe isolation and deep connection with the wilderness that they wrote and recorded the majority of the self-titled album. The aim was to try and examine, capture and represent whatever tenuous connection still exists between the natural world and all its organic elements of randomness and authenticity and the human world.
