Overlake was formed in Jersey City, NJ by Tom Barrett and Lysa Opfer, who found a shared love of 80’s & 90’s alternative and indie rock while performing in another band. “We would stay late after practices,” said Lysa, “Tom on drums and me on a Rhodes, sometimes even switching up the instrumentation, and just pound out really cool, long, melodic noise jams, reminiscent of our influences. It was a lot of fun.”

 Eventually these late-night jams paved the way for the beginnings of Overlake, which officially began in an hourly studio in Jersey City about a year later. “You can definitely hear the influences in our sound,” said Tom, who calls My Bloody Valentine, Pavement, and Sonic Youth among Overlake’s major inspirations, “but we have made it very personal. It’s like a fluffy jackhammer in your eardrum.”
