Eras of music are often a cyclical/recycled beast – over the past few years, we’ve seen the nu-metal revival in the form of bands like Sylar and Issues, and the shoegaze/dream pop/grunge throwbacks of bands like Turnover, Pity Sex, and Superheaven (long live Daylight). You can comfortably put Georgia’s Lost Boy somewhere in the latter category – they’re certainly not the product of 1999. But what they are is somewhere between the guitar-driven shoegazy alt-rock of Swerverdriver/Ride/Hum, and the pop-punk of early Turnover, if such a midway point can be imagined. In other words, what Lost Boy is doing is a fairly unique take on the genre, setting feet in both camps instead of one or the other.
We’re stoked to be premiering their new track, “Cave In”, which you can find below. Their EP New Normal can be preordered as well – it’s out July 15th – and the band is having a release show to go along with it.
