Lost Drones Drop New Single, “Star Frame”
Albany natives Lost Drones have released their very first single from their upcoming EP, entitled “Star Frame”.
The indie psychedelic rock band started in January of 2019 with members Sam Gleason (vocals / guitar), Conor Grocki (vocals / bass), Nick Palazeke (drums) and Austin Smith (guitar).
“Star Frame is the second song in a concept EP about a bright-eyed newcomer who grows cynical as he realizes how harsh reality can actually be,” says vocalist Sam Gleason. “This particular song talks about how lavish and indulgent practices are presented to us as the perfect life and path to happiness.”
The track, which was engineered by Gleason and produced by vocalist / bassist Grocki is a unique, fun and bright-sounding single that tackles the hard truths of growing up and learning what life is like outside of the idealism of childhood. “Star Frame” is reminiscent of Suck It and See-era Arctic Monkeys with some vintage-sounding psychedelic riffs throughout the song.
It’s a perfect song for this particular time period — a time when many of us are constantly inundated by images of the wealthy and famous, something that 99% of the population cannot be. Humans growing disillusioned and cynical has been a common theme in 2019, and “Star Frame” captures this feeling in a way that is palatable yet melancholic despite its bright melody.
“The character learns that even those with these seemingly perfect lives are miserable, the first of many harsh truths he realizes throughout the EP,” continues Gleason.
Their debut EP, The Rut, will be released within the next few months. You can listen to Lost Drones on Bandcamp.
