Lost Cousins, an indie psych rock band that has played Barrie many times in the past, just released their first LP, In Scenery via Pheromone Recordings.
Members Cam Duffin (drums), Lloyd McArton (guitar, saxophone), and Thomas Dashney (keyboards) – are influenced by contemporary indie rock outfits like Tame Impala, Bombay Bicycle Club, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Local Natives, but pull, too, from the foundations of rock music, and pop sensibilities to create anthems to sing-along to.
They got their start in university throwing epic house parties/ shows in their home. Lost Cousins made the big move to Toronto to record their first full-length 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).
