Lost in the Light by Bahamas

Lost in the Light is a single off of Bahamas’ second full length album Barchords. With a stripped down sound consisting largely of just guitar and voice, Lost in the Light is an excellent representation of the way in which Bahamas focusses on embellishing the rudimentary elements of the song rather than using larger arrangements.

Making excellent use of guest female vocalists on this track, Afie Jurvanen (Bahamas) complements his guitar style well. The vocal harmonies are crisp and simplistic, giving the perfect amount of emphasis on the chorus of the song, and Jurvanen’s guitar tone is warm and well rounded. The lyrics are also well written, demonstrating how Bahamas is adding his own flavour to the ballad songwriting style.
