Dappled Cities
Lake Air

Written by Alice Juster

Lake Air is the long-awaited fourth album by indie rock band, Dappled Cities. It has been three years since we’ve heard any new music from the Sydney-based quintet, and the boys are sure to avoid any disappointment.

Dappled Cities launched Lake Air in June, alongside musical guests, Bluejuice, Megan Washington, Palms and Catcall. In an interpretive journey, the Lake Air tracks were explored and redefined, inciting much anticipation about the release of the album in early August.

Lake Air is experimental, fresh yet remarkably familiar. The album is fun and upbeat, displaying a return to youth feel from the boys.

First single, Run with the Wind, packs a punch and we see a track full of layered melodies and a spellbinding falsetto.

Newest single, Born at the Right Time streams disco pop creativity. It’s cheerful and quirky and is sure to get indie kids up on the dance floor, dancing their tight jean dance.

From first play the album gets your attention. It’s constantly changing what you’re expecting to hear. Whilst Lake Air feels polished, mature and sharp, each song delivers an incredible sense of flawless effotlessness. It is funky, uplifting, emotional and above all else – it’s a perfect indie album.

Waves is a simply stunning and hypnotising song, offering raw beauty in every moment of intimate piano and solo vocals. I wanted to hear so much more and I hit repeat 3 times before I moved on.

On final inspection, I can picture this album being played in a dark Melbourne bar while sipping on a jäger and ginger beer, enjoying the unison of each drum beat, smooth guitars and spiraling harmony.
