It's little surprise that the debut album from Imandra Lake sounds rather like the band that spawned it - both Rein Fuks and Eve Komp are longtime members of Pia Fraus, and the same sense of sweetly tuneful shoegaze (as opposed to full sonic violence) carries over to Seesamseesam. With its linguistic focus fully on the performers' native Estonian, there's a slight statement of purpose at work, but given the sonic style's emphasis on music and harmonies over lyrical straightforwardness it's more of a sidestep - and above all else, it still sounds lovely.
Estonian indie label Seksound releases Imandra Lake's debut album Seesamseesam on September 2010, making Estonia richer by another shining shoegaze pearl. Imandra Lake is a new project of Pia Fraus' Rein Fuks and Eve Komp, formed in 2008 in Tallinn, Estonia, and follows the similar shoegaze line but it's all fresh and speaks Estonian. The tracks that have been heard here and there so far have caused quite an excitement and received positive feedback.

Imandra Lake released their debut LP ‘Seesamseesam‘ in 2010, praised for its spacious (and otherworldly) dream pop atmospheres.
