Lost Worlds - What You Say     Rock, Garage, Electronic, Grunge 22/06/2018
Lost Worlds are an Australian Rock and Roll band from Queensland, formed in 2016. Their sound is a musical hybrid of early 2000s Garage Rock and Video Game Electronica.
Garage Rock with punk energy that got thrown into a video game. Driven by dynamic synthesisers and guitar effects. It's about the overload of information, propaganda, and trying to find yourself when so much is pressured on you.
