Based in Montreal and formed by a husband and wife combo, The Besnard Lakes are players of prog-pop. They are nominated for the prestigious Polaris Prize for 2010 though this is not a surprise as two of their three albums (so far) have been nominated.
Taking their name from a lake in Saskatchewan, the Besnard Lakes members, Jace Lasek, Olga Goreas, Kevin Laing, and Richard White, got together in 2003 and right away caught the attention of music lovers in their home town with their atmospheric music. Listening to them is like hearing snippets and influences from different eras of rock music.
