Though Cymba and Victoria Rojas are both new on our radar, we’ve been convinced by their song together that we need to follow both the artists closely going forth. Cymba, a production project from the windy city of Chicago, offers up dusky plinking, haute enchanting future bass and chill trap on Lost, whilst fellow Chi-town talent Victoria Rojas turns in sweetly soothing, honeyed and supple vocals on the endearing track. If this is what being lost feels like, then sign me up, I don’t want to ever be found again! Lost can also be streamed/downloaded via alternate outlets, here.

Well, this trio of artists, songwriters, and producers who hail from a wide array of locales including London, Toronto, and LA certainly got it right when they named themselves The Swoons. Lost is their stellar new single, and it’s totally swooning, a sentimentally melting fusion of future bass and soulful pop that shimmers and flickers with supple dexterity. Its silky vocals, delicate keys, and warm guitar strums add to the romantic allure of the dreamy track. We gladly lose ourselves in Lost. “Baby can I run away with you?” they coo on the molten track. Well, you know our answer that question, and it’s a resounding yes. For more of The Swoon’s heartrending electronica, stream last year’s Sabre below, too. Keep up with the three piece via their website, here.

The fastest way to make me “lose control” is a ferocious beast of a high voltage dance thriller like this one, from Dutch producer Samuel Xantos. Once those high lunging, heavy jouncing beats and that exultant melody hits my ears, I can’t help but get up and throw myself all across the room to Lost. The electrifying anthem, a fierce incendiary banger from start to finish, is out on Launch Records. Prepare to dance your way through the holidays to the future house and progressive house behemoth, which can be purchased, here. For more of Samuel Xantos’ vigorous and spry electronica, take Walls for a spin below and let it fill your night with a whole lot of wonder and joy.

When I think of Darwin, I think of evolution, and this young French producer who’s chosen the same pseudonym for his solo project certainly seems like the next evolution in chill electronica and alt pop. Lost is his first single and the title track from an upcoming new EP, and it’s a suave slinking, atmospheric swirling fusion of nostalgic, soulful pop and dreamy alt electronica. A bit of Youth Lagoon, a hint of Yoke Lore, some Glass Animals, and the nebulous electronica of Kaytranada are fused altogether on this strangely addicting fixture. New EP Lost is expected to arrive in early January. Purchase/stream its first single, here.

Lose yourself in the intricate beauty of Lost, a finespun soundscape designed by once Londoner oshi. Now based out of Los Angeles, the much respected producer has flawlessly blended a myriad of instruments and elements into his pensive ambling ambient future beats track. Listening to Lost is like going on a voyage of sonic exploration. It’s like walking through the world of Avatar for the first time, if it really existed. Flora and fauna of all exotic types flutter about and encircle us. We can’t help but reach out and touch each and every one in wide eyed wonder, sure we never want to return to the everyday world.

There seems to be a handful of bands who go by the name of Fjords, or in this case, The Fjords, and they hail from many different locales. But there’s no mistaking or forgetting the appeal of this project, lead by singer songwriter Petter Vågan, who comes from Norway (a place quite famous for their fjords). The Trondheim based outfit shared an illustrated music video today for their vibrant thrumming alt and synthpop single Lost, giving us quite an entrancing treat to go along with the propulsive song’s throbbing synths, driving electronics, and sparkly veneer. 

“Lost is about the long and hazardous way out of an abusive relationship. It’s about finding your way out of a fantasy world that’s been pulled over your eyes,” Petter Vagån explains. Purchase/stream Lost, here.

Lost I am, in the husky soulful vocals of MADDEE and the simmering late night vibes found on her new single. It seems to be MADDEE’s first appearance since she teamed up with Canadian producer Harrison on a couple of his singles a year ago. Lost is a jazzy, snazzy twilight R&B soul serenade dripping in classy sophistication. It’s like a more laid back and mellow Flight Facilities meets TOKiMONSTA chimera, crossed with the elegance of Jessie Ware, the chicness of Tom Misch, and the soulfulness of Yuna. The bewitching beauty is out on Beatnik Creative.

“Lost” I’d gladly be if I had Sea Girls to accompany me. The London by way of Leicestershire and Kent quartet caught our ears earlier this year when they released their third single Call Me Out. They’re back with more of their infectious rollicking guitar pop and coastal blustering indie rock on magnificent new single Lost. The four lads that make up the band made their live debut together as a Sea Girls earlier this summer. They’ll next play at The Lexington in London on September 18th. We’ll be on the lookout for news regarding their debut EP, and they’re certainly staying on our bands to watch list.

Nakita arises out of New Zealand, captivating me with a smoky brittle voice, on new single Lost. This pop aria seems the perfect autumn and winter accompaniment. The glass jar Nakita achingly sings about seems to capture and hold our own hearts within its sheer confines. It’s said this singer songwriter is already a rising star back home in Christchurch, and it’s easy to see why after we’re brought to our knees by this powerfully blooming, emotive broiling beauty. Nakita explains that she wrote Lost at a time in her life when hospitals were her home. Her little sister was tragically lost at only 7 weeks of age after being diagnosed with Spina Bifilda. Nakita captures the heart shattering sorrow of that experience on this staggering and oh so personal ode. Lost is out now on iTunes.

I’m rather disappointed in myself for missing American Football when they played San Francisco for Noise Pop Festival back in February this year. It’s not often you get to see this legendary band live, after all. Though that pigeon may have flown the coop, maybe I’ll get to see Owen live sometime this year instead. Owen is the solo project of American Football’s Mike Kinsella, and he’s been working on a debut full length album entitled The King Of Whys. From that record comes a gentle strummer named Lost, which was in fact produced by Bon Iver’s much brilliant member S. Carey. I knew, even before I listened to Lost, that Mike Kinsella and S. Carey would be a divine pairing. Sure enough, Lost is an intimate folk & Americana ballad. It wears its heart on its sleeve. Mike Kinsella tells us a heartfelt story, and it feels like it’s just Owen and me, in a little cabin, having a cold draft and bemoaning the facts of life. But its verdant strings certainly have some of that S. Carey touch shining through…  outside is a lush forest, and magnificent mountains, and squirrels romping, and deer grazing. Life goes on around us anyway.  Debut album The King Of Whys drops on July 20th via Polyvinyl
