Ever in a state of flux, Being There is essentially a vehicle for Sam Lewis.
Beginning as an indie pop venture, the songwriter has since switched into more electronic climes. New EP 'Overnight' features contributions from Rozi Plain (Fence Records, Lost Map Records) and Anya Pearson (Leisure).
Out on February 3rd, the EP contains four tracks of synthetic whimsy. Continually drifting across pastoral scenes, Being There continually surprises – this is a place where synth pop melodies can be interrupted by a sudden burst of clarinet, an unexpected backing vocal.
Clash is able to premiere 'Generator' and it's a seductive introduction. Softly enticing, you can tune in below:
Sadly, 'Overnight' is set to be Young & Lost Club's final release. In a statement, the label said:
"After ten wonderful years and over 75 releases, we will be closing our doors at Young and Lost Club following our last release, the Being There EP 'Overnight', in February. We'd like to thank all the artists we had the pleasure of working with, everyone who supported YALC and all those who bought our records and attended our clubs over the years."
"We'd also like to invite you to the Independent Label Market on the 29th November, where we will be manning the stall all day, with some special guest appearances from Y&L artists. Available at the market will be limited edition Ten Kitten Y&L bags, commemorating our tenth anniversary."
