We Lost The Sea: Departure Songs
Sydney’s mortality-obsessed post-rockers ravish the senses
Songs about death are plenty but it’s a theme We Lost The Sea explore to great depth on the uplifting and inspiring Departure Songs.
Each track is based on a life lost, ranging from those on the Challenger shuttle, to a deep sea diver, to three men who gave their lives to Chernobyl. As such, the album moves in waves of sadness and the melancholy air is all too present throughout.
