Julia Shuren and Wami find common ground on their soulful single and video Lost Sometimes — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Armed with a thought-provoking and message of self-acceptance that crosses ideological barriers, the award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter and the Italian music duo join forces to craft a song about navigating the societal pressures that complicate our lives. As the world becomes increasingly unpredictable, Lost Sometimes offers a positive statement on the resilience of the human spirit. “It’s a reminder to those struggling that it’s okay to feel this way,” Shuren shares.
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 yet familiar. Layered pianos and saxophone embellishments construct a more acoustic song execution to the typical R&B ballad. The beautifully shot video complements the comforting harmonies of Lost Sometimes with potent optimism in every frame. Visual themes of finding happiness and overcoming adversity are embedded throughout the clip, offering testament to the judgment-free nature of the message.
Wami is the brainchild of Italian artists Lorenzo Ghelli and Federico Naso, who began collaborating professionally with their music four years ago. After achieving success with their previous releases on various labels, Wami recently made their jump to full independence. Meanwhile, Shuren has worked with some of the biggest musical acts in the business. From composing music for popular podcasts to gaining the attention of legendary Motown arranger/songwriter Paul Riser (Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder), Shuren is an in-demand talent who continues to thrive. She’s currently working on her first EP, slated for spring.
