What began as an acoustic side project between the Transit vocalist Joe Boynton and guitarist Vinny Comeau in 2010 between touring has lead to a full-time band over the course of the last year. The duo signed with No Sleep Records in late 2012 and entered the studio with co-producer Gary Cioffi, Jr. (Transit, Misser) in early 2013 to record their first full-length with drummer Aviv Marotz, guitarist Mat Morin and Bassist Mike Moschetto in tow.
Once in the studio Comeau departed the band, leaving the rest of the guys primary reign over the songwriting and direction of the new material, resulting in a bright and airy collection of ten beautiful indie-pop tunes that exhibit a range of styles and moods, from upbeat power-pop to solemn folk, which any fans of bands like Death Cab For Cutie, Circa Survive, Maps & Atlases and Rilo Kiley will undoubtedly adore.
“It’s been a long time coming and I can’t wait to share these songs with everyone,” says Boynton.
“We entered the studio with just some simple acoustic tunes, but left with a record that’s bigger, better and more varied than we’d imagined,” adds Moschetto.
Long Lost has premiered the first new song, “Want,” their second officially released song to date, from their upcoming album today. The song is a simple, heartfelt ballad that starts with Boynton’s inimitable vocals backed by an acoustic guitar and abounds with catchy verses and a memorable chorus that will surely be a fan favorite.
“It’s hard to pick favorites from the record, but in trying to make a first impression, I think we all had ‘Want’ in mind,” says Moschetto. “I think we’re all in top form on this one.”
