Lake (stylized as LAKE[2]) is an American indie pop band, signed to K Records, based in Olympia, Washington.[1] Formed in 2005, 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.[3] Another Adventure Time episode entitled "Shh!" , featured their song "No Wonder I."

Musical style[edit]

Lake features male and female vocals backed by guitars, keyboards and occasionally horns. AllMusic referred to Lake as being "one of several brainy and sweet indie pop bands... to call the Pacific Northwest their home."[1] These characteristics were also noted in their reviews by Pitchfork Media. Like many artists on K Records, their style is lo-fi.
