STATS Reveal New Single ‘Lose It’
London art-pop band Stats share their newest track Lose It, a glimmering cut speckled with vibrant synths.
Lifted from their upcoming debut album Other People’s Lives, which is set to be released on February 15th, Lose It is the newest single from Stats.
An exuberant track that explores the temptations and consequences of disappearing, the conflicting emotions manifest themselves in the lyrics as vocalist Ed Seed contemplates, “I wanna lose it completely never to be seen again”. Backed by a rousing beat and a thrumming bassline, it’s a hypnotic track that will draw you in.
Elaborating on the inspiration and meaning of the track, Ed says:
Life as story, as routine, as objects, as obligations – it piles up like laundry or landfill, sometimes it’s all just there to be lost. Do you fear loss or crave it? Are you a pusher or a jumper? Disappearance is seductive. Do you pony up for another gig in the cloud or do you just want to throw it all away? And how would you be sure it was really gone – where does it all go?
I love this song because it feels both heavy and flyaway at the same time. I cut and pasted it together from bits of a long live jam – it took about half an hour to assemble, one Sunday morning while my baby was napping. When he woke up I took him to the supermarket and on the way home I just started singing the tune – it came out exactly as it is, words and all. Later in the evening I whispered a first go at the vocal into my phone in the kitchen after he’d gone to bed.
