#335: Arctic Lake - How Long Can You Stare (single review)

Very little is known about London-based three-piece Arctic Lake, though it’s doubtful it will stay that way for long. Forming after meeting at university, their sound is best described as a merging of influence. From London Grammar-esque ambient instrumentation to Bat for Lashes‘ penchant for baroque-pop theatrics, it’s an amalgamation which has already earned them favour with the likes of BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio, and, given the success of the aforementioned London Grammar in 2013, as well as Liverpool’s BIRD earlier this year, it’s a sound that’s sure to see them go places.
