Waiting for Smith Releases New Song “Lost in Your Light”
- British singer-songwriter Waiting for Smith released his third single of 2020 entitled “Lost in Your Light” on November 27th, following “Long Life” and “Lines of Love”.
He worked with Dutch alt-pop band Causes's guitarist Jan Schröder for the track.
The song is about the fact that we're all pretending to be alright, happy or confident, but actually, in a way we're all lost and are just too afraid to share this with one another. When you truly open up to someone, and show them your vulnerabilities and fears, it creates a kind of intimate glow around you.
Harry Lloyd (Waiting for Smith's real name) said, “This last year I've really been trying to listen properly. As so often we feel the need to fill in our own ideas of what people say to us, making it into a story that suits our worldview, or our image of the person. When you get truly lost in someone's presence and the light in his or her eyes it's how I imagine dying to be- you can find a true peace there.”
Harry Lloyd was formerly a ski instructor in the French Alps, Lloyd broke his back in two places during avalanche training. After spending a year in bed recuperating and learning to play guitar, he formed Waiting For Smith, named after endlessly waiting for their original drummer Smith, who always failed to show up.
He debuted with “Meditation” in 2019. He said of his music, “I'm also a hopeless romantic, so a lot of my songs focus on the different angles on love.”
