Canadian band Lost Cousins muse over the incessant metamorphic nature of life in their new single “Stay” where they blend shoegaze ambience with indie rock’s energy to yield the perfect meditative soundscape. It fizzles and shimmers with nostalgia, but there is also a sense of acceptance to go with the flow of life – for better or worse. Stream below:

“Our latest song ‘Stay’ is about both physical and emotional movement. Uncertainties that lie ahead and remnants of the past are unearthed through the reflection of changing landscapes on a long road trip. The song describes adjustment to departure through fragments of memories from a backseat window.”

Formed back in 2014, Lost Cousins is known for their indie rock and psych sound. They’ve toured across North America and played at various Canadian festivals including Wayhome, CityFolk, NXNE, and Hllside. They are currently working on their debut LP, which will be out in 2019 via Pheromone Recordings. Meanwhile, check them out:
