For the indie psych rock outfit Lost Cousins, grappling with life transitions—and the domino effects of those choices—is at the core of their sprawling, celestial-sounding debut LP. The record is a sweeping, anthemic tribute to the things one loses or gives up; the places one longs for, especially as one grows up and moves on. Pushing forward and leaning into change isn’t as easy as it looks. It’s a record that spans the entire country and collapses back into itself; feeling like a swelling tide in the ocean with a significant, sweet comedown like when the tide settles on the beach. The band has toured throughout Canada and the United States, including opening spots for The Strumbellas, Hollerado, and The Wooden Sky. Recent Canadian festival performances include sets at Wayhome (2015), CityFolk (2016), NXNE (2017), and Hillside Festival (2017). Lost Cousins is Cam Duffin (drums), Lloyd McArton (guitar, saxophone), and Thomas Dashney (keyboards).
