Manchester-based four-piece, Lake Komo went on a heartbreak-fueld roadtrip and now have some incredible art to show for it. New single 'Milwaukee' is one of the first songs the band wrote together, which explores frontman Jay Nudd's past emotional trials. An adventure down the West Coast of the USA, was then captured by director Franklyn Banks in a fascinating video to accompany the new track, which is destined to be a summer anthem.

"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 roadtrip 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," Jay said.

Lake Komo are currently in the studio with producer Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, London Grammar et al.) putting the finishing touches to their debut album. Find all upcoming live tour dates below.
