About

Lake Malawi are a self-published, 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 have played over 300 shows in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Austria, Israel, Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom.

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. His hobbies include surfing, snowboarding and yoga. Apart from co- producing Lake Malawi material with Albert, Jeroným is a lawyer and a passionate football player.

Lake Malawi opened for Thirty Seconds to Mars in Prague in 2014. In 2015, they released the EP „We Are Making Love Again“ with the single “Chinese Trees” winning the new music chart on UK’s Amazing Radio and played at The Great Escape. They later caught the attention of The Kooks’ and Mika’s managers which secured them a support slot at their Prague arena shows.

In 2017, Lake Malawi released the full-length debut album „Surrounded By Light“ featuring „Paris“ and „Prague (In the City)“. In 2019, they represented the Czech Republic at the Eurovision Song Contest placing 11th in the grand final with “Friend of a Friend“ co-written by Albert). That performance was watched by over 200 million people worldwide.
