Vague Lanes is a darkwave duo from the East Bay. The band consists of music scene veterans Mike Cadoo (Gridlock, Bitcrush) and Badger McInnes (Here We Burn, After the Apex). With already an album “Foundation & Divergence” on the Swiss Dark Nights label and a sell released EP “Cassette”, the duo favors driving drum machines and sparse synth ornamentation as a backbone for their dual bass guitar amalgam. Their music carries the classic post-punk ideology while adding modern detail.
