The White Lakes are a four-piece Indie Rock Band, based near London.
The band members, Matt Ellacott (Rhythm Guitar and Vocals), Finlay Carson (Lead Guitar and Backing Vocals), Logan McQuirk (Bass) and Kyle Oliveira (Drums) are all under the age of 21, they originally formed in Oxford and have been together just over two years.
Over the last 2 years the band have grown from small clubs to headline shows and festivals stages. Performances include: The Wedgewood Rooms (Portsmouth), Truckfest, Carfest, Summer Live, SOMA Festival, The Boiler Room (Guildford), Live Wyre Festival and The Camden Assembly. 35 shows in 2019 and counting. The White Lakes were recently invited to support Razorlight at a sold out O2 Indigo, in London.
Last summer culminated in the release of their much anticipated single ‘Wolves’. The lyrics highlight how people change over time without even noticing it, but it heralds a purposeful direction for the band to a more powerful polished sound.
