Lakeside X is an alternative independent pop/rock band from Prague, Czech Republic. Inspiration for their sound can be found in the waters of classic synth-pop (like Depeche Mode), as well as modern electronic music (Royksopp) or even alternative British guitar music (like Placebo).

The songs combine melancholy with energy, synth sounds with guitars. Together with the fragile voice of frontman and songwriter Janne Marvannen, they create a unique and original character to their music. The lyrics are not simple and deal with reflections of loneliness, sadness, inner searching, love, wanting, light and darkness of the inner universe. In its history, the band has released four albums and established itself on the electronic scene. The band’s fans can be found all over the world, from their home country of the Czech Republic, to Poland, Germany, England, Russia, USA, and countries like Argentina.

After 10 years hiatus the band got together in 2020, and started working on new songs with produc-er Daniel Myer (Haujobb, Architect, Covenant). First single outcoming from the cooperation with Daniel Myer, called “Fire In The Sky” was released in December 2021, accompanied with a lyric video made out of the drone footage from the Canadian wilderness. Second single, “Rising” was released in February 2022, with video shot at the empty streets of Berlin. Third single, “Lifeline” was released in June 2022 and fourth, final single “Time Has Come” with video from Prague’s river em-bankment, was released in October 2022, shortly before the album release. The album itself, titled “Love Disappears” was released on October 21, 2022 and the band played a special show – release party to promote the album release in Prague’s Lucerna Music Bar, together with the guest vocalist Emese Arvai-Illes and Daniel Myer and his projects Architect and DSTR.
Since album release and further in 2023 the band have been touring diligently. The list of gigs in-clude supporting a darkpop legend And One or a German act Forced To Mode, as well as perfor-mance on NCN festival in Leipzig or Schwarze Ball in Zurich (alongside Front 242 or Suicide Commando). The fifth single, “Fascination” is accompanied by a video showing the band’s current concert appearance, with guitarist Jakub Zachoval added into the lineup.

In 2023, the band reached another big milestone – their great role model, the legendary band Depeche Mode, chose them as the support act for their Prague concert on 30 July 2023.
Lakeside X kicked off 2024 with a March tour of twelve German cities as a guest of the English band Empathy Test. In the summer they will also perform at one of the biggest festivals in Europe, the Serbian Exit.
