LAUREN

LAKIS

000199DMAX.jpg

A child of Baltimore, Lauren grew to embrace the fatalistic spirit of the city in her work and art. With stunningly raw, haunting tones, Lakis is "a breath of fresh air in the music industry, arriving with her own brand of 'delightfully gut-churning shoegaze'" (Flaunt). Authentic and honest lyricism, paired with lush, darkly romantic vibes, her songs are “a refreshing change from today’s polite rock…” (Earmilk). 

 

Following the release of her debut full-length Ferocious with Cavity Search Records (Elliott Smith, Helio Sequence) in 2018, Lakis has delivered audiences her slowcore heavy, baritone-driven follow-up EP,  Sad Girl Breakfast. Both records were produced by Billy Burke (REL, Luna Lovebad) with additional engineering by Grammy-winning mixer Chris Kasych (Adele, Deftones, Phantogram, HAIM). Both releases have gone on to garner radio airplay on 40+ stations nationwide, and placement on 65+ Spotify playlists. Lakis has also licensed tracks to Dating Pains and The Drunch

Her newest LP, Daughter Language, was released 1/22/2021 with Green Witch Recordings. It has received critical acclaim from Flaunt, Wonderland, Earmilk, Ladygunn, Buzzbands LA, Grimy Goods, Atwood, Dark Beauty, and more, with 1st Day Fresh naming it "a rock gem...the music is equally as powerful as the message with an electric magnetism rarely found in today's overproduced records".  Daughter Language was recorded at Seahorse Sound with Billy Burke producing and Chris Kasych & Samur Khouja (Devendra Banhart, Deerhunter, Chastity Belt) mixing. 

 

Lakis and her full band have toured the West Coast extensively, and have shared bills with Drowse, Coastlands, and Emmet Palaima (Elizabeth Colour Wheel). Pre pandemic, the band played to a sold-out room at Doug Fir Lounge, as well as The Catalyst Santa Cruz, with Flor & Winnetka Bowling League. Lauren also performed a pair of solo shows with Grammy-nominated rocker Tracy Bonham. During quarantine, Lauren has performed several livestreamed shows, partnering with Bands In Town, Jam in the Van, B Side TV, Rock to End Rape Culture, KXLU, ACLU, and JuJu Live. 

Lauren's first show back post pandemic was at Firepit Sessions, with Sea Wolf.
