“Lost in the Light” is the gorgeous slow-burn album opener off of Bahamas Barchords which belies the complexity that presents itself in the album. Here though, a golden smolder of a guitar line guides the melody along before it becomes transformed by a pitch perfect choral vocal and rumbling piano lines. But mark my words, you’ll be sold before he even says his first word.
As a bonus, I’m also including “Caught Me Thinking”, the song that follows on the album. I’ll be damned if i will hear another better guitar song this year. This song has hips. Download both below.
Barchords, the sophomore effort of Bahamas, was released February 7th, 2012 on Brushfire Records.
