Sanctuary Lakes: “Until The End”

Sanctuary Lakes: “Until The End”

Say hello to Sanctuary Lakes, a brand new project of Tim Hoey, who’s most widely known for his work in Cut Copy and Andy Szekeres of Midnight Juggernauts, forged out of lo fi folk psychedelia, instrumental library records and delicate electronic sounds. Borne in Brooklyn during idle time improvising in front of the meditation station on television, Tim Hoey sent rough sketches of his noodling to Andy Szekeres in Melbourne, initially to see what his old friend made of them. Beyond merely offering feedback, Szekeres went ahead and added to the songs, initiating a workflow than became an almost wordless conversation between the two, as files drifted back and forth with the currents until deemed done.

As two musicians with years and albums of experience under their belts, Sanctuary Lakes came together during a period of reflection and faint anxiety that their best ideas might be behind them. Work on the album acted as a form of therapy and confirmed that the stream of creativity still runs strong.

The pair’s debut, self-titled album is out now on Cut Copy’s Cutters Records, and it’s a great ride from start to finish. After getting your fill of their new track “Until The End”, make sure to check out the video for the stellar first single “The Long Fade Away”, firected by Christopher Hill and Jackson Dickie, below.
