VOSTOK LAKE is the darkwave-with-a-sense-of-humour project of New Zealand electronic singer-songwriter Daphne Lawless. VOSTOK LAKE's songs contain 80's synth-pop beats, prog-rock inspired keyboard solos and extended song structures, and lyrics which have been described as "bitter, angry performance poetry".

"the unholy offspring of hate-sex between Tori Amos and Gary Numan"
"Yazoo meets The Skeptics meets Raw Sex… on speed"
"Stranglers meet Midge Ure on helium" (not sure about that one)
"Bonnie Tyler meets Keith Emerson"
"what might have happened if Eric Woolfson had written lyrics for ELP."
"Sort of like Peaches crossed with… er… um…"
