Forming in early 2017, LaKyoto is representative of a new sound in ‘The Old City’. The band make electronic pop music with stomping drums,
pounding sub-bass and colossal melodies. Arriving on the scene with nothing more than a short, enticing trailer, LaKyoto have caught the immediate intrigue of a city that has embraced the mystery and excitement surrounding the young quartet. Kyoto - the ‘thousand year capital’ of Japan - is known for its respect and preservation of pre-war architecture, much like Edinburgh’s old town. The name pays homage to the band’s hometown, whilst also impressing their desire to not only rise to the peak of British music, but across the globe. LaKyoto’s highly-anticipated debut single, ‘Runaway’, was released early 2017, followed by second single, ‘Heart Beats Loud’, in Spring 2018. The band’s latest single, ‘Something About You’, was released in Autumn 2018 and was met with support from Spotify’s New Pop Revolution playlist - amongst others - greatly increasing their growing fanbase.
