A laid-back indie-electronica outfit whose new single has been picked up for the Radio 1 playlist will be appearing live in St Albans later this month.
Manchester-based four-piece Lake Komo will be playing The Horn pub in Victoria Street on Tuesday, October 18.
The band’s breezy new track Milwaukee, out now on Columbia Records, is on the Radio 1 playlist.
Milwaukee is one of the first tracks the band ever wrote together and explores a break-up frontman Jay Nudd experienced one university summer not too long ago and the emotional trials and tribulations that followed.
Directed by Franklyn Banks, the accompanying video sees Jay embark on a journey of discovery across America, cementing Milwaukee as the band’s summer anthem.
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.
“The warmth and positivity of the American people we met along the way acted as the perfect accompaniment to a song which mainly looks at self-discovery, realisation and the excitement of things to come.”
Relocating from Lancaster last year, Lake Komo are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album with Cam Blackwood, producer of London Grammar and George Ezra.
Lake Komo are Jay Nudd (vocals), Liam Maxwell (drums), Jess Gould (keys) and Pete Bentley (bass).
