The Electorate‘s brilliant debut album ‘You Don’t Have Time To Stay Lost’ was for me one of the highlights of 2020 (see my review here), and they’ve just released a video for the dynamic penultimate track ‘Lost At Sea’: a driving, thunderous piece of music that ebbs and flows like a spring tide.
Indeed the video, directed by audio/visual artist and musician Tim Bruniges, matches the aquatic themes of the song – watery visions that bubble and flow before the camera, changing colour, shape and texture to the rhythm. The simplicity of the vision serves to perfectly highlight the track itself – layers of vocals, a shifting pace, scything bass and enigmatic lyrics – are you lost at sea, pushing the blue and green, did your eyes catch the burning as we were returning?
This is a compelling track – imbued with emotion and with a cathartic blast:
