Lostboycrow is back with another stunning single that will take you worlds away. The LA-based pop artist and producer released the track “I’m a Sailor Not a Salesman”, yesterday and it has lived up to expectations. Slower than the more recent tracks he has revealed, the song is smooth and beautiful. “It’s synthetic, it’s just not fair”, sings the songster.
This new material comes as part of his successful three-part LP, Traveler. The single is now the second song to be revealed from what is to be his highly anticipated Traveler: The Second Legend project! It is disparate from the other tracks as it includes much more raw instrumentation, from the R&B guitar lines, to the pop-touched vocals, and the electro-painted tones.
The melancholy intonation in his voice makes you fall in love with the storytelling of the mystic who leads the seas and the song waves. Lostboycrow’s voice has always been able to be strong over the compositions he designs. The voices in the background give this dream-like sensation to the already hazy soundtrack.
The Oregon-born musician is absolutely one to watch as his music is what music should be. (The single already has 33,768 streams on Spotify in less than 24 hours) “The idea that who we are and are becoming is a direction leading us to far greater places than any other pursuit. Any other motive” details Lostboycrow, as he explains the development of this beautiful and wondrous song.
Lostboycrow has always been a favorite of mine and one I feel has so much to offer to the music scene. His artistry is one that can best implement various genres at once, and every song has this element of hopeful sadness that grabs you by the heart and takes you away to better places in your mind. It’s like going off on your own dark trip to Neverland, falling in love with a broken heart, and traveling off into the world with emotions of wanderlust and blissful uncertainty.
Lostboycrow, himself, is a mystery to all, hiding behind the alluring lyrics he writes. Nonetheless, that is what makes his music that much more attractive and provocative.
Check out the song above, and stay tuned as this artist grows, creates, and strolls into our lives.
