|Seth Roberts and the members of the band Lakes have come together to create a hopeful set of songs that unabashedly shine as such, while still maintaining maturity‚Äîalong with touches of time-tested realism. The debut EP for Lakes, entitled Photographs, harmonizes with lovely, bold, spot-on vocals‚Äîjangley-warm guitars, hints of banjos, and melodies at-times-reminiscent of The Police or Tom Petty. This first work captures qualitative reflections, romance embraced, answered questions, and unabashed reveling in light of the decidedly strange ‚Äústate of things‚Äù.
