‘Electrifying’ indie band Lake Komo are soon to take to the road in a series of UK headline shows promoting their forthcoming debut album. Beginning as an acoustic band, the foursome have since blossomed into a unique electronica inspired number and have been recruited by Columbia Records (Daft punk, Stone Roses, Adele) for their record later this year.

Currently in the studio with popular producer Cam Blackwood – who has also produced for the likes of London Grammar and George Ezra –  Jay, Prince, Maxwell and Jess are producing their new record for 2016.

2015 was a big year for the group, seeing them support the likes of Jack Garratt, Hidden Charms and Eaves as well as making festival appearances at Liverpool Sound City, Y Not and other festivals further afield. Their recent EP Ritual ‘showcases expansive, bold arrangements; lush electronic soundscapes act as an impressive backdrop for their emotionally driven songs and soulful vocals which instantly resonate with audiences who are falling for their coastal indie pop sound.’


The band have also recently released their brand new track Milwaukee, a track which explores a summer break-up of band member Jay and all the concomitant emotions that come with a young heartbreak. The video for the track was directed by Franklyn Banks and follows the tale of frontman Jay’s embarkation across America. The track was called Milwaukee because at the time it was written, band member Pete was wearing a t-shirt with the word on it. Regarding the video, Jay said “We wanted a video that would mirror the sentiment of the song whilst giving the viewer a real sense of discovery and wonder, and a road trip up the Californian coast gave us the perfect opportunity to do that.”

On the 9th October, the band will be at The Talking Heads in Southampton – a haven for eclectic live music, The Talking Heads offers live entertainment every day of the week and hosts regular jazz, irish folk, singer-songwriter sessions and open mic night and it’s here Lake Komo will be previewing tracks from their upcoming album in Southampton.


Their opening show takes place in Manchester on the 8th October and will begin a string of dates in the North, concluding in Scunthorpe on October the 29th.
