Everybody wants what Vostok Lake wants

Daphne Lawless and Tricia Hall, rocking faces since 2018
Tricia Hall and Daphne Lawless are Vostok Lake

Vostok Lake is the music that comes from low-budget electronic hardware, open-source audio software, and wetware with a subversive sense of humour, too much ambition and a big sexy brain. Our slogan is NO GUITARS, NO BOYS, NO BUDGET, NO PROBLEM.

Our long-awaited album COMICS AND STORIES is now available in all formats. Knew you'd be pleased.

If you like finely-programmed synth-pop arrangements with goth-operatic vocals, prog-style keyboard improvisations, punk-cabaret interactive performance chaos, revolutionary cultural politics and the idea of a broadband connection plugged directly into your skull, then Vostok Lake is your kind of music. The live act has been described as "Bonnie Tyler meets Keith Emerson", "Peaches meets David Bowie", "Depeche Mode meets Flight of the Conchords", "Tori Amos meets Gary Numan" or, alternatively, "Yazoo meets The Skeptics meets Raw Sex... on speed."

Vostok Lake believes that in the 23rd century, all music will sound like this. You have not heard anything like Vostok Lake, nor do you know anyone who has. Thanks for coming.

(... on the playground of the broken hearts...)

Website's updated. Because it needed an entire "brain transplant", as it were, we've made a conscious decision not to restore some really crusty ancient pages from before Tricia joined the band. Some of the photos were pretty, but they didn't add anything to the future. There might be room for a "VL History" subsection, featuring pre-2018 material; or even load such stuff up on the "Daphne's Old Music" website. If there were any public interest.
