National Lakes

I got sent an email. It read:

National Lakes is a new band featuring Black Hotels singer and songwriter John Boyd.

And there were Facebook and Soundcloud links attached.

Given my favourable opinions of the Black Hotels (you’ll have heard them here, here and here), I wasn’t going to give this one a miss.

And I wasn’t disappointed.

So much of The Cure in that music. So much of… er… The Black Hotels in that voice: the gentle yet precise annunciation.

Lovely. Nice work, John Boyd.
