Overlake releasing debut LP (stream a track), playing shows

by Bill Pearis

Overlake

Jersey City residents Tom Barrett and Lysa Opfer met while playing in other bands and bonded over a shared love of ’90s bands like My Bloody Valentine, Yo La Tengo and Sonic Youth. This friendship soon led to a musical collaboration and Overlake were born. The duo’s debut album, Sighs, is out April 15 via Killing Horse Records. While the influences are apparent, Barrett and Opfer take a different path with them, and their vocal interplay really makes things appealing. Sighs is a warm and fuzzy treat. (Like an autumn sweater? Perhaps.) We’ve got the debut of the album’s penultimate track, “Our Sky,” and you can stream it below.

Overlake have a few NY-area shows coming up: Jersey City’s The Lamp Post on Saturday (4/5) with kindred spirits Dead Stars (who have a new record too); May 4 at Hoboken Arts and Music Festival; and May 19 at Baby’s All Right with The Everymen and The Brooklyn What.
