Lo Village – “My Bag”

Lo Village officially announce their forthcoming album Yellow Brick Road, which drops July 14, with the new single “My Bag.” Yellow Brick Road almost marks a return for the trio as it serves as a followup to their acclaimed 2021 EP Lost In America, which was followed by signer Ama’s sudden diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. She soon lost control of her voice and was unsure if she could return to music, however her fellow members Kane and Tyler came together to support her — and this became the basis of Yellow Brick Road. “’My Bag’ is a realization that there are more important things in life other than money but it’s what you make out of life that matters the most,” the trio shares.
