LAKE[3] is an American indie pop band, signed to K Records, based in Olympia, Washington.[2] Formed in 2007, they are also known for composing the end song to the Cartoon Network show Adventure Time, entitled "Christmas Island" or "The Island Song" . A version of the song was featured on their third album, Let's Build a Roof.[4] Another Adventure Time episode entitled "Shh!" , featured their song "No Wonder I."

Musical style[edit]

LAKE[5] features male and female vocals backed by guitars, keyboards and occasionally horns. AllMusic referred to LAKE[6] as being "one of several brainy and sweet indie pop bands... to call the Pacific Northwest their home."[2] These characteristics were also noted in their reviews by Pitchfork Media. Like many artists on K Records, their style is lo-fi.
