Steve Kilbey & Gareth Koch - Lost At Sea

Steve Kilbey & Gareth Koch - Lost At Sea
‘I’m just a guy holding the pen’ – is the poignant opening line of the recent
Steve Kilbey & Gareth Koch collaboration ‘Lost at Sea’.

The statement seems innocent enough at first glance, yet it elegantly addresses the mystery of creativity.

The sentiment is even more interesting given the background of the two protagonists. Steve Kilbey, perhaps best known as the frontman of veteran rock band The Church, has a lifetime of esoteric lyrics to his credit. Kilbey’s themes pose questions and riddle-like answers. Gareth Koch on the other hand, a Viennese-trained guitarist/composer, has explored the nature of creativity head-on in his PhD thesis.

These considerations aside, this collaboration has yielded a truly beautiful and timeless ballad. There is a wistful and haunting lilt to ‘Lost at Sea’, as it floats seamlessly through a narrative of stolen hearts, voyages into solitude and roaming in no-man’s land. And to compliment these lyrics is a delicious instrumentation, weaving and wafting, ghostly and waif-like, present yet elusive.

This is possibly why this collaboration works so well. Kilbey & Koch are both masters of the esoteric form. As they step sideways from their respective genres this coming together highlights a close aesthetic connection.

About this track...

The second release in this series of collaborations between Church frontman Steve Kilbey and classical guitar virtuoso Gareth Koch. This release features more layered guitars, drums (Barton Price of Models fame) and soundscapes, all pulled together with Kilbey's mysterious lyrics and ethereal vocals.
