This east London trio create a lo-fi post-punk which Husserlianly transcends Sonic Youth’s visceral energy into raw teetering repetitiveness which is hypnotic and empowering. They have the jangly pop sensibilities of Ride with the gnarly urbanism of The Fall yet reinvigorate a nu-gaze sound which often seems to border on psy-trance played live. There’s an noir art-house edge which trumps more fashion conscious contemporaries. The Londonist Ones to Watch 2012
Lost Left have a vast sound with shifting movements, resounding guitars and an other wordly sense in the lyrics, that hints towards, if anyone, Lift To Experience or perhaps British Sea Power. Live, the band has grown a reputation for a heavy driven sound and unexpected turns.
“If you’re into your early New Wave influenced post-punk leanings this’ll be right up your late 70′s blacked-out alley. The lovely ‘You’re Not Welcome’ in particular borrowing from Joy Division in terms of Jon’s vocal presence, close-atmosphere and sumptuous bass-riffs; though greeted with a warm handshake by The National maybe?” Hello Empty Room
ES MUSS SEIN - https://www.facebook.com/esmussseinuk
Poppy Wilson, aka Es Muss Sein (German phrase meaning “It must be!”), is an acoustic singer songwriter who will win you over within the first 5 seconds of hearing her voice. Her song, “Sail”, is nothing short of brilliant, with the singer carefully imposing herself over the slightest strum of the guitar.
