Lake Street Dive

The title of Lake Street Dive’s Free Yourself Up is both an exhortation to listeners and a statement of purpose for the band. The songs have an infectious swagger, even when dealing with awkward breakups or the unsettled state of our world.

Free Yourself Up is Lake Street Dive’s most confident album yet, seriously soulful and exuberantly rocking. And, in many ways, it is Lake Street Dive’s most intimate and collaborative, with the band itself taking over the production reins and working as a tightly knit unit to craft these ten songs. In addition, the quartet drafted touring keyboardist Akie Bermiss to join them in the studio, literally freeing the band up to explore a wider range of instrumental textures, construct more full bodied arrangements, and build stacks of lively background harmonies.

This album is based in the realities in our time, Kearney reflects, which have inevitably become part of everyone's daily life. It's something you think about and obsess over and write songs about. Free Yourself Up is about empowering yourself, emboldening yourself, no matter what's going wrong.”
