Additionally, Lost Horizons today share a video for the track “Blue Soul” which features guest vocalist Laura Groves. Of the track and video Groves says: I filmed the performance myself at home using the very basic tools I have – very much the same way as my music video for “Infinite Wisdom”. These restrictions were imposed by the lockdown we were under at the time, but were also reflective of the words that I wrote for ‘Blue Soul’; themes of solitude, inner worlds and landscapes, connection with nature and a very personal creative process that permeates and is often interchangeable with everyday life, and maintaining those connections on a planet that is endangered.”
Lost Horizons have perfected their ability to collaborate with the best of the best. This diverse range of outstanding artists has teamed up with the equally flawless Lost Horizons. With “Blue Soul”, this rich emotional reach forms from Groves tender vocal harmonies that soar amongst the vibrant and soulful instrumentation. This wholesome journey hooks you immediately and the power fuels the exploration and keeps your attention fixated throughout.
Lost Horizons is the project of Cocteau Twins’ Simon Raymonde and Richie Thomas of Dif Juz. The band’s new album, In Quiet Moments, was released in February via Bella Union.
Lost Horizons have previously shared videos for ‘I Woke Up With An Open Heart’ featuring The Hempolics, ‘Grey Tower’ featuring Tim Smith, ‘Cordelia’ featuring John Grant, ‘One For Regret’ featuring Porridge Radio, ‘Every Beat That Passed’ featuring Kavi Kwai, ‘In Quiet Moments’ featuring Ural Thomas, ‘Marie’ featuring Marissa Nadler, ‘Heart Of A Hummingbird’ featuring KookieLou, ‘Halcyon’ featuring Penelope Isles and ‘This Is The Weather’ featuring Karen Peris from the LP.
