Lake Street Dive’s debut album, SIDE PONY, will be released on February 19, 2016.
The band recently won over local audiences when they toured New Zealand in March 2015 playing at Auckland Arts Festival and Womad.
The members of Lake Street Dive met in 2004 as students at Boston’s New England Conservatory of Music. Though they were all studying jazz, their work together was informed by their love of classic pop, particularly from the ’60s, including the Beatles, the Supremes, Dusty Springfield, and The Beach Boys.
For several years, the group was a part-time proposition, but in 2012, Lake Street Dive became a full-time combo after a YouTube video of the quartet acoustically performing the Jackson Five’s ‘I Want You Back’ on a suburban Boston street corner went viral.
Their new single 'Call of your Dogs' goes to radio in NZ this week.
