Created in her Chicago bedroom studio with production contributions from Daniel Loumpouridis (co-wrote/co-produced Louis The Child’s “It’s Strange”), The Rise is Lake’s formal introduction to the world. She found her musical footing while writing the EP, leaning into her diverse skillset as a producer, songwriter, and performer. Her music is completely unrestricted by traditional song structure, often diverging into an array of genres and sounds that are, at once, jilting and captivating. On The Rise, Lake’s beat-driven production, confident vocals, dynamic pop-styling, and dance-floor rhythm come together to create an electrifying record.
Ava Lake is a true creative in every sense of the word, dipping her toes into a variety of artistic mediums, including songwriting, production, fine art (she creates her own cover art), acting, and dance. Lake pulls influence from 2000s glitch-pop, 80s vaporwave, and current-day lo-fi bedroom pop in order to create a fresh new sound that feels ready to debut on the dance floor.
