Hungry Lake – “Out of Line”


Toronto act Hungry Lake show a consuming sound that intertwines folk, psychedelia, and rock. The group’s first iteration came upon founding members Joe Thomas and Ryan Webb meeting at Seneca’s Independent Music Program in 2008, with gradual additions to the lineup combining with the songwriting growing to a more progressive stance in recent years. They will be releasing a new full-length, New Destruction, this fall, as well as embarking on a national tour. New track “Out of Line” does well in building anticipation for the release and showcasing the group’s sound, with calming vocals guiding mellow verses into melodic expansion that shows commendable musicianship and melodic chops. With a lively and vibrant sound, Hungry Lake seem like they’re in for a big 2018.
