Kat Koan & The Lost Souls have shared their new single, ‘Lost Souls’.
Arriving with a video shot in the basement of an old Stasi building turned recording studio in Berlin, and inspired by the sounds and attitude of 90s riot grrrl, it’s a cut from the band’s newly-announced album ‘Cocoon’, due later this year on vinyl and Bandcamp.
Kat says: “LOST SOULS is essentially a song about the urge to grab life by the horns. There are always a million reasons why it’s easier to go with the flow, accept the status quo, keep your mouth shut and stop fighting for dreams.
“During the lockdowns I realised that I had spent a lot of time feeling sorry for myself, looking for excuses for procrastination and waiting for miracles to happen – until one day I snapped out of it and stopped waiting for luck to fall into my lap. We are our own lucky stars. Life is more fun when we live it instead of merely existing and drifting with the tide.
“I’m excited about this song – and the other songs on the album – as we stuck to the initial pact we made, to not follow trends or try to please, but to keep it 100% real and raw, and non-air-brushed so to speak, moving away from over-produced polished sounds and injecting lots of emotion, personality, attitude and grit.”
