Pop Prince Blake Rose Confronts Loneliness On Addictive New Single "Lost"
When we first fell for Blake Rose, the Aussie-raised, LA-based singer-songwriter had just dropped his debut single “Hotel Room,” an electric pop anthem that skyrocketed him to success as an emerging force on the radio-pop scene.
Now, just a few months after that release, Blake follows it up with “Lost,” a tender effort. Reworked to perfection, Blake took his time crafting a narrative that was important to him. See what he told us about “Lost” below.
“Lost” opens with that groovy guitar riff Blake mentioned — layered strums rolling in steady waves — before his soft vocals come in delivering a clipped first verse dissecting the disquietude of returning home to an empty bed. Soon, the pulse of percussion emerges and smooth rhythms start to double up once Blake hits the chorus with his emotive falsetto. Most of the track is a balanced composition, thrumming along to the insistent pace set by that twangy guitar riff and kick-drum, but sometimes the arrangement blooms a little to welcome a more robust assembly of pulsing, throbbing rhythms. Blake’s stirring vocals move seamlessly throughout the earnest indie-pop world he’s built — “Lost” is straight from the soul, one of those tracks designed to cut right to the core like Blake tugged it up out of your own chest.
