Their new release, Something About You, which drops September 28, features crushing synths, crisp beats and stunning lead vocals from frontman, Conor Joss.

LaKyoto are gradually constructing the kind of bold, self-assured aesthetic that makes this single their biggest to date. Having have caught the immediate interest of Edinburgh’s gig-going crowd, the band now continue to build on the mystery and excitement that’s been generated by their live shows.

These accolades come with high expectations and their new single is guaranteed to increase their extremely bright future.
