Great Lakes formed back in 1996 in Athens, Georgia and has been based in Brooklyn, NY since 2002. The band has released four albums. A fifth record called Wild Vision will come out this month on the band’s own label, Loose Trucks.
While their early records traded in a whimsical, light-hearted psychedelia, the band have gradually gravitated toward more personal songs, with a darker tone. That pattern continues with Wild Vision.
