Dripping with vibrant tones and doused in an intoxicating neon-soaked ambiance, sparks fly as DEAD LAKES hit the ignition, launching into their latest sonic chapter by way of glistening new single Wrong Way.
Out today via SharpTone Records, the dynamic track emerges as the Seattle quartet’s first official offering since the group’s 2020 EP New Language, and vocalist Sumner Peterson, guitarist Max Statham, drummer Chon Adam, and bassist Cody Hurd waste no time catapulting listeners down a luminous highway of sound and emotion.
Produced by Sam Guaiana (Silverstein, The Devil Wears Prada), alluring hooks, moving lyrics, and edgy rock elements take center stage, further expanding on Dead Lakes’ crisp alternative-rock-meets-pop attitude with a thoughtful twist. And, according to the band, it’s no coincidence that Wrong Way mimics the feeling of contemplating one’s life from an introspective third person perspective.
Incorporating a mixture of stylized animation and live action footage, fans can also enjoy a striking sensory experience courtesy of the track’s accompanying visualizer. Watch and stream ‘wrong way’ here: https://bfan.link/wrong-way
