Up At The Lake





In 1990, they were a Hammond-fuelled baggy dance sensation. By 1994, they had morphed into a swaggering Rolling Stones-esque monster. And by the time 2001ís Wonderland hit shelves, frontman Tim Burgess was singing in falsetto like a new school white Prince. So where on the Charlatans continuum do we find them on their new single ìUp At The Lake?î In a much better place than on their last record, thatís for sure. Gone, at least for this song, is the falsetto, Burgess returning to his distinctive throaty timbre. Also back is their keyboard-heavy, rhythmic bounce. A jaunty little ditty, ìUp At The Lakeî features chiming guitars and a beat to shake your ass to. Letís just hope that their upcoming long player that shares the same name as the single is up to par.
