Perky pop-punk band Lake Sycamore from Cardiff released their first track ‘Over and Over’ on Saturday that’s already being massively welcomed into the pop-pop scene. The five-piece has been hard at work over recent months producing the track at Unit 13 Studios and is taken from their upcoming album Stepping Stones which is anticipated for later this year. ‘Over and Over’ is of high-energy, with massive influence from renowned bands such as Neck Deep, Knuckle Puck and WSTR. Being the bands’ first track, it’s a brilliant starting place with crisp production, the chemistry between musicians and clear distinction in the bands’ direction. Lake Sycamore has not gone lightly with their first track, ensuring their establishment in the industry.
Being the first real introductory look we have of the band, Lake Sycamore has defined their place in not only the Cardiff scene, but stretching across the world where people are enjoying their current three-and-a-half minute portfolio. Filled with melodic guitar riffs, combative drums and a bassline that ties it all together, ‘Over and Over’ is anthemic in tone and poisonous in nature – it’s deadly catchy. Containing the thriving pop-punk attitude of angst and depth, Lake Sycamore has filled the balance fans have been waiting for. It’s as if Neck Deep’s Life’s Not Out To Get You went out and impregnated The Story So Far’s Under Soil And Dirt, bringing you the Stepping Stones love-child. With all-around positive feedback about the track, Lake Sycamore is riding upon epic momentum, bringing excitement and anticipation for their next release.
