“Dekker squares the circle between Nick Drake, early Neil Young and Will Oldham” – Uncut
Wonderfully understated, heart-wrenching music. Their haunting sound finds its roots in vintage folk and alt-country colourings, shaped by accordion and piano, lap steel and acoustic guitar, with a voice that seems to come from the walls.
“Great Lake Swimmers have built their decade-long musical career around deep, hushed folk-pop that, at times, can be breathtakingly lo-fi. Over the course of their slowly-evolving releases, Great Lake Swimmers — and, really, Tony Dekker, band founder and lead songwriter/vocalist — have cultivated a lush sound that always seems to be based on blurring the lines between the grandeur of nature and the grace of emotions” -City Pages/Natalie Gallager
