'Lost' is taken from the upcoming sophomore EP from Somebody's Child - 'Hope, Amongst Other Things'.
A prominent voice in the Dublin music scene, Somebody's Child has become one of the hottest prospects in Ireland having accumulated millions of streams and spots on some of Spotify's most prestigious playlists.
The band's energetic live sets have led to a performance on The Late Late Show, Kodaline and Kaiser Chiefs support slots, as well as festival appearances on the BBC Introducing stage at Reading & Leeds.
Godfrey's songwriting skills often focus on narratives surrounding mental health struggles and the experience of growing up in Dublin.
Somebody's Child have now released their latest single, ‘Lost’, representing the second chapter of their new EP Hope, Amongst Other Things.
‘Lost’ is an introverted conversation taking place during challenging times, addressing feelings of being adrift in one’s twenties.
Leaning more towards the pop-influenced side of Somebody’s Child, the track displays a sense of coming to grips with, and facing one's challenges head on.
The track's soothing chord progression, rolling drums, and raw vocals offer yet another impressive delivery from the rising Dublin band.
"'Lost' was written when I came out of college and experienced a lot of career anxiety," Somebody's Child said.
"Everyone else seemed to know what they were doing except for me. It seems a fitting time to release it at the end of a year when so many of us faced this challenge. It taught me a lot in hindsight, I think I was probably suppressing a lot of emotions that were manifesting in situations that weren't really relevant to what was going on inside. It's a real example of what a therapeutic experience songwriting can be."
Hope, Amongst Other Things will arrive in early 2021 ahead of the group's UK and Ireland tour in March.
Their most recent EP, 20-Something, was released on August 7 and contained a slew of powerful pop-rock singles.
