Mercury Machine share brooding 'The Lost'

The Lost addresses personal journey of lead singer Lee Maguire through this complex subject, and is delivered is delivered an inimitable confidence.

Musically it takes their 80s laced aesthetic and dips further into electronics, with a driving synth-led instrumental that works in harmony with the guitars for a pulsing crossover of electro-post punk. Both message and music is equally executed with aplomb, forging forward musically as a band and keeping this important conversation going.
