Award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter, Julia Shuren has joined WAMI for a new single, “Lost Sometimes”.
The Belle River, Ontario-born Songwriting Hall of Fame’s 2021 NYU Steinhardt Songwriting Scholar Award winner collaborated with the Italian music duo to craft a song navigating the societal pressures that complicate our lives. As the world becomes increasingly unpredictable, “Lost Sometimes” lands as a positive statement embracing the resilience of the human spirit.
“It’s a reminder to those struggling that it’s okay to feel this way,” Shuren shares.
The lyrics genuinely emphasize a humanistic approach to living instead of comparing the significance of our achievements to others; its liberating lyrics mesh with the warmth of its musicality.
A slight departure from the EDM style typically associated with WAMI, the track’s robust audio production gives the listener a sense of something new and simultaneously familiar. Layered pianos and saxophone embellishments construct a more acoustic song execution to the typical R&B ballad.
The beautifully shot music video accompanies the comforting harmonies of “Lost Sometimes” with potent optimism in every frame. Visual narrative themes of finding happiness and overcoming adversity are embedded throughout the entire video — a testament to the judgment-free nature of the message.
While this isn’t the first time WAMI and Julia Shuren have collaborated, “Lost Sometimes” is another indication of the creative alignment between these artists, regardless of genre.
