Two Bright Lakes is an independent, artist-run label based in Melbourne, Australia. Since forming in 2007 we have released records by Nick Huggins, Seagull, Kid Sam, Oscar + Martin and Otouto among many others, put on visually and aurally engaging live shows at venues throughout Australia, launched this website, produced some exciting video art and animation and are continuously cultivating ideas, shaping them into new art and music. Two Bright Lakes exists as a way to share the information, skills and resources of a gang of like-minded individuals, helping to support their mutual creative passions and endeavours and bring them to a wider audience.
Contributing to the label are the bands Otouto, Seagull, Touch Typist, Kid Sam, Psuche, Hello Satellites, Collarbones, Oscar + Martin, Speed Painters, Dream Kit, Batrider and The War Diaries of Frank Brown, as well as individual artists Adrian Simons (digital art and technical consultation), Blake Byron-Smith (mixed-media artist, web design, dj), Hazel Brown (Otouto), Mark Gretton (Touch Typist), Nick Huggins (Touch Typist, producer, web design, solo musician), Chris Bolton (Seagull) and Tigga (Touch Typist, dj).
Two Bright Lakes is constantly evolving, embracing new artists and technologies, and travelling further afield to find new people, ideas and experiences around the world.
