J-Pop supergroup End of the World (Sekai No Owari) have unveiled their new single ‘Lost’, a collaboration with acclaimed trio Clean Bandit.
The English-language bop features lead vocalist Fukase’s dulcet tones over an irresistible electro-pop beat, offering a perfect musical fusion of End of the World and Clean Bandit’s trademark styles. The track arrives bang in the middle of the heatwave and there’s no doubt that this sizzling song will be a huge uplifting summer anthem.
Having toured with Clean Bandit in the US, this collaboration is a natural step forward in their friendship and further showcases End of the World’s ability to explore their creativity. They are more than just a typical J-Pop group and aren’t afraid to experiment with their sound.
Check out the lyric video for ‘Lost’ below.
End of the World, also known as Sekai No Owari in their native county, are a group formed of four childhood friends – Fukase, Nakajin (guitar), Saori (piano), and DJ Love. Currently considered as one of the biggest music acts from Japan, the group have sold out huge venues including the Nissan Stadium where they performed to a sold out crowd of 140,000 over two days.
In addition to Clean Bandit, End of the World have also worked with a number of other high profile artists including DNCE, Owl City, and most recently Epik High on the track ‘Sleeping Beauty’.
Not only has the band’s creativity led to them releasing incredible music and delivering show-stopping concerts, but they also caught the attention of Marvel, who reached out to them in order to create a brand of comics together. The whole process was also released as an original YouTube documentary.
‘Lost’ is available to download and stream now.
