DeLooze - Lost Army

Single review by

Maybe it's a sign of the times. There was the predicted beginning of a shift in consciousness and potential increase in natural disasters and so on that had been forecast by many cultures (including the US government) that supposedly began in December (the Mayans didn't predict the end of the world, get your head out of your Hollywood movies!), and today it was reported that the Russian meteor which injured thousands earlier this year sent out shock waves so powerful they circled the globe twice - far bigger than any atomic explosion in history. But the music world also seems to be going through a bleak period, and this new single from London's DeLooze fits in perfectly.

This is not to say the song is bleak and dull, more that it comes with a tension; it feels full of doom and talks of "danger" and having to "run away". 'Lost Army' definitely has a touch of the apocalyptic about it, and is another example of a current wave of bands spontaneously producing music of a similar mood. DeLooze tackle the subject in a grander fashion than most. This song isn't minimalist doom-mongering, and nor is it end-times post-rock. This is a huge, slightly orchestral monster of a tune. It feels like an approaching disaster than mankind can't avoid. If we really are going through a transition and more strange natural or man-made disasters are likely to occur, then here's your soundtrack to it.
