Lost Horizons have today shared a video for a dreamy new standalone single “Florida” featuring the vocals of KookieLou aka Lily Wolter from Penelope Isles. Of the track and video Lily comments: “Like most videos my brother Jack and I make, this one was most certainly trial and error. A lot of the time we find ourselves surrounded in a jungle of paints, flowers, glitter, string, lava lamps and makeshift green screens and say, ‘what have we gotten ourselves into?’ Despite the hours of drawings and the former attempts to make something that suited the trance-like, flowing, softness of the song, we got there in the end! The lyrics are about a time I spent on tour in America a few years back. We wanted to show an abstract journey overlooking all sorts of weird and wonderful views. I’ve always wanted to go up in a hot air balloon, but I reckon it would be pretty damn scary. Big thanks to our mum for assisting with the papier-mâché balloons, to our dear friend Josh for the helping hand, and to Lost Horizons for wanting me to sing on their music, I’m once again, truly honoured.”
In other news, due to unforeseen circumstances, Lost Horizons have been forced to reschedule their headline Scala show that was due to take place next week. The show, which will feature a multitude of guests including John Grant, C Duncan, Porridge Radio, Penelope Isles, Laura Groves, Ren Harvieu and many more, will now take place in June 2022.
