Indie-pop band that is ready to make it outside of their home country.
Lake Malawi are an indie-pop band founded by Albert Černý (lead vocal, guitar, keys) and Jeroným Šubrt (bass, keys) in 2013. The name was inspired by a Bon Iver song.
They represented the Czech Republic at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 placing 11th in the grand final with “Friend of a Friend“ (co-written by Albert).
Albert writes the music and lyrics to most Lake Malawi songs (as in his previous band Charlie Straight) while writing for other artists too. He received four Czech Music Academy Awards and an MTV award for his work. He was born in 1989 in Třinec on the Czech-Polish border and speaks fluent English, Polish and German. He likes surfing, split-boarding and yoga. Apart from co-writing and co-producing Lake Malawi material with Albert, Jeroným is a lawyer and a passionate football player.
