‘LosT’ by Bring Me The Horizon – Single Rating: 4/5 ★★★★☆
With their latest single ‘LosT’, Bring Me The Horizon continue to demonstrate their evolution as a band. Part of their Post Human series, the track is a departure from the band’s earlier metalcore sound. Instead, it showcases a more experimental and atmospheric approach to music.
The opening of the song sets the tone with a haunting melody that sets the stage for the rest of the track. Frontman Oli Sykes delivers his vocals with an intensity that perfectly captures the song’s themes of loss and despair. The chorus is particularly striking, with Sykes singing “Why am I this way? Stupid medicine, not doin’ anything” over a driving beat and an anthemic guitar riff.
The accompanying music video, directed by Jensen Noen, is a visually stunning and eerie visual representation of the song’s themes. Featuring Sykes acting in an unsettling way, the video perfectly captures the sense of alienation and loneliness that the song conveys.
‘LosT’ is undoubtedly a departure from Bring Me The Horizon’s earlier sound. But, it is a testament to the band’s willingness to take risks and push themselves creatively. The song is a complex and layered work that rewards multiple listens. Also, with new details and nuances revealing themselves with each listen.
Overall, ‘LosT’ is another impressive addition to Bring Me The Horizon’s discography, and a promising sign of what’s to come from the band in the future. With their upcoming headline appearance at Download Festival, fans can look forward to hearing this exciting new material performed live in front of a passionate crowd.
