ElectricUTOPIAN three piece Urbantramper were stalwarts of the Wellington music scene between 2005 and 2013. They released five full length albums and three EPs over their 10 year lifespan. Urbantramper combine sounds from the 80s, 90s and Tomorrow to create the soundtrack to the future we forgot. DIY pop for the wireless.
The band featured Lake (vocals, bass, keys, midi fighter), Andy Hoy (drums, midi triggers), and Phil Jones (keys, backing vocals, bass).
The music continues as Lake South.
