Dallas-based emo/post-hardcore trio Lost At Sea will be releasing their debut album Motion Sickness on April 30th via Revival Recordings (Alesana, Famous Last Words). The music video for "The Albatross" is out today, the third single from the upcoming record.
"The Albatross" is based on a book called The Raw Shark Texts by Steven Hall. A wild sci-fi adventure about a conceptual shark that feeds on memories. At its heart, it’s a story about a person battling survivor’s guilt in the aftermath of his partner’s death. His guilt was so strong he lost all memory of her, eventually regaining it over the course of the story.
"I found comfort in the book while experiencing my own grief and wanted to try and tell that story in a relatable way," says vocalist/guitarist Aaron Gonzalez.
In the music video for "The Albatross," we follow a similar journey for the main character. Throughout, he’s searching for something. He’s wandering an empty house trying to make sense of a feeling that something is missing. Gradually, he starts to remember the person he's missing and at the end of the video he’s finally able to join her again.
