Everybody wants what Vostok Lake wants

The 2018 lineup of 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.

Click here for upcoming gigs, and NEWEST OF THE NEW: our long-awaited album COMICS AND STORIES is now available in all formats.

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.


The Stories of Comics and Stories: Part 11, "A Limousine in a Cul-de-Sac"

Submitted by vostoklake on Wed, 11/17/2021 - 16:53

“A Limousine in a Cul-de-Sac” is at the intersection of Tom Wolfe’s Bonfire of the Vanities and Peter Hammill’s “Losing Faith in Words”. Not much more to say about that, apart from that we're particularly proud of the percussion line. Tricia's backing vocals really make this track, her "unearthly calls" somewhat freaking out the producer; the image of the party bus on the roundabout is hers.
