"El Lago is a Galveston-based shoegaze group that released their debut album, Colors, last year, characterized by a sense of haunting melodies backed by illustrious guitar sounds that bring to mind waves softly crashing on a misty shoreline. The group’s singer, Lauren Eddy, has been vigilant in helping create a network of bands between Austin, Houston and Galveston."

"The release of Colors launched the band on a packed year-and-a-half of music videos, touring, and regional shows, including sets at In Bloom Music Festival and Third Coast Music Festival. The band has supported Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab, The Black Angels, Holy Wave, The Wild Moccasins, and more."

"They’ve created a sort of effervescent dreamscape with synthy, pedal drenched tracks that just lifts you up.  And while there is some heavy ‘80s and ‘90s influence to the tracks, it feels current in its succinct production, psychedelic tenors, and layered compositions."

"The band used their 30 minute slot to impressively blend shoegaze sounds of guitar and synth with the infectious vocals of Lauren Eddy, which together had the audience in a dreamlike state by set’s end—an ideal state of mind to be in for Holy Wave [and the Black Angels]."

"Playing the massive Bud Light stage, the four piece had no problem showing that they were ready for such a huge space. The band's sound echoed throughout the large bowl as they burned through the songs from last year's Colors with ease, keeping the energy high and giving one of the better sets of the second day [of In Bloom Music Festival]."

"There are only a couple of times a year you can see a band that makes you wonder where they came from, why you haven't heard of them before, or how are they not a bigger band than they are."

"The guitars are deft and sinuous and busy without being over-the-top... There’s a bit of Sonic Youth at times, a bit of My Bloody Valentine at others... a whole bunch of Kate Bush."
