These days, everything's coming up The North Lakes. Their debut EP Cobra just earned them a Music PEI award and their single "Bravado" is climbing the CBC Radio Three chart fast. And not only have they been chosen to play an ECMA showcase in April, but they'll also be playing their way up to Canadian Music Week in March. "It'll be our first jaunt into Upper Canada," says lead vocalist Nathan Gill. "We'll see if we get eaten alive or not." Though they're busy breaking out, and playing gigs galore, another EP isn't completely off the radar. "We've got a bunch of new songs we want to record pretty soon. We're just kind of letting them sit and ferment for a while to see if they grow in interesting ways."
