Adelaide’s pop-punksters Down And Out have teamed up with dynamo Emmy Mack in delivering their latest high-octane banger, “Lost [In Exposure]”. We’re thrilled to be premiering the track ahead of its release on Friday.
The energetic vocals of front-man Luke Ganeo kicks things off and grabs the song by the scruff of the kneck. With a driving beat, classy guitar work from David Potter, and the introduction of Emmy Mack beautifully complementing Luke’s vocals, there is a captivating energy to the track. Deftly layered and infused with electronica, “Lost [In Exposure]” is a sweetly constructed ball of passion.
The song is about choosing what makes you happy, not what others think you should be doing. The band explains the inspiration behind the track: “‘Lost [In Exposure]’ is about realising I’m at a point in my life where music is becoming the only viable option. I was told by everyone around me that it was a pipe dream so I went to Uni, then I got a job and I did all the things I was supposed to do, and it always felt like there was a hole inside me. I got to a point where I looked around at what my life was one day and went “If I have to do this for the rest it my life I’m gonna kill myself”. Playing music, no matter how poor I am, no matter how little sleep I get, no matter how difficult and taxing it is, is the only thing that will ever truly make me feel alive and fulfilled. I always thought music was something I wanted to do, but once I put it on the back burner I realised it’s something I have to do.”
The track was produced and mixed by ARIA-Nominated producer Stevie Knight (Stand Atlantic, Yours Truly, RedHook) and mastered by Grant Berry of Fader Mastering.
