Regular readers of EUPH. will no doubt be fairly familiar with Lake Komo by now. It is no secret that we really rate the now Manchester-based quartet. Following their relocation from Lancaster, the band have been steadily building a growing fanbase in the North West and as their shows have grown, so too has their sound. A point no more beautifully illustrated than by new single, “Resurrect.”
Following the release of their debut Ritual EP last year via Columbia, the band started 2016 as one of Radio X’s Great Xpectations and are currently on an extensive tour of intimate venues around Northern England to coincide with the release of their latest track. Having already started to carve a name for themselves with stunning, expansive, bold arrangements whilst on tour with the likes of Jack Garratt and Eaves, and at The Great Escape, Live at Leeds, Liverpool Sound City, Bushstock and Kendal Calling festivals, “Resurrect” opens on a sparse vocal line before bursting into life with a crunching drum and guitar combo that sets the tone of the next four minutes. The track has bite as it soundtracks a second coming – not being afraid to get back up again after a fall. A welcome addition to the band’s repertoire, it fills a gap you didn’t even realize existed.
