Adriane Lake

Toronto – If you’re looking for something new, might I suggest the music of Vancouver native Adriane Lake, the self-proclaimed purveyor of “adorkable” electronica.  Morning Glow is the second and latest release from the artist and it features an impressive compilation of songs – all composed, arranged and produced by Lake herself – that offer the listener a delightful smorgasbord of whimsy: drum and bass, pianos, accordions (and just about anything else you can imagine) combine effortlessly to create an album that is nothing short of fun.

Lake’s voice is both textured and playful and calls to mind, for me at least, music greats like Tori Amos and Annie Lennox (my only complaint is that it isn’t more heavily featured on the album). While definitely rooted in electronica, Morning Glow is peppered with bubbly samples that are fairy tale-esque. If you were to take the music of early-nineties Bjork (think “Big Time Sensuality”) and throw it into a blender along with that of The Postal Service, The Cocteau Twins, as well as the theme song from Twelve Monkeys  and the musical score of Le Petit Prince,  you’d have a have a pretty good idea of what Adriane Lake ‘s music is about.

Fun, brilliantly composed, and unlike anything I’ve heard in a long time, Adriane Lake makes wonderful music.  Morning Glow is incredibly addictive; I plan to keep it on heavy rotation throughout the holiday season.
