about

Lake Ruth was formed in 2015 by multi-instrumentalist Hewson Chen of The New Lines, drummer Matt Schulz (Holy Fuck, Enon, SAVAK) and vocalist Allison Brice (The Eighteenth Day of May, The Silver Abduction). Their expanded live line-up includes René Dennis (The New Lines), James Canty (The Make-up, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists), and David Mason (Listening Center).

Inspired by 1960's sonic experimentation, baroque psychedelia, library obscurities, vintage pop noir, Giallo soundtracks, kraut and jazz, Lake Ruth creates intriguing and unique music rich with multilayered instrumentation, propulsive rhythms and atmospheric vocals.

Following up two excellent albums and several singles, "Extended Leave" is their latest music and perhaps the sharpest, most incisive example of their deep, thought-provoking pop yet. Mysterious and melodic, both sides of this double-A side single ably demonstrate why Lake Ruth are one of the most interesting bands out there today. Part of the SLR30 Singles Series.

Track Name: Extended Leave
It echoes on throughout your mind
You cannot control it now
Much as you want to
Your eyes they fix upon the opening clause
In the fading light it reads
Dim as your future

Once in awhile the company calls
But you're not listening to reason
For some time you've led them along
Facing a mounting suspicion

You're looking for the person in charge
Will they give you what you're asking
Give you what you're asking
You grow obsessed looking at your watch
But you can't speed up the time
And the hours are everlasting
Track Name: Strange Interiors
So you're the last hope
And the last solution left
Sorry for a time
Trying to see through all your tears
But it's ok
Cause we'll all end up home again

You'd try to fix it
But you don't know how
It seems like the wrong time
And the wrong place now
But it's alright my friend
It's the thought that counts

The interiors never felt this strange
Once they depart you will forge ahead
The way unknowable
Your air makes it possible
When the report reaches the Earth
You're such a hero
