Biography

We Lost The Sea are a 7 piece post-metal band from Sydney Australia.

Formed in 2007, friends came together to create a new collection of noise that incorporates relentless sludge with post-rock atmospherics with melody, dynamics and crushing heaviness and elements that hold up to the likes of ISIS, Mogwai and Sigur Ros.

They released their first record entitled ‘Crimea’ - engineered and mixed by Magnus Lindberg of Cult of Luna in mid 2010.

Late last year they released their second record "The Quietest Place on Earth" to acclaim from both fans and critics alike at home and internationally, making best album lists of 2012 above bands like Converge and Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and best sellers on Bandcamp.

Having a new line up has breathed fresh air into the band, and they kicked off the second half of 2012 with a bang, supporting Rosetta (US) and playing a handful of highly successful local shows including their sold out album launch. Lochlan Watt from Triple j's THE RACKET, put We Lost The Sea's performance supporting Rosetta as the number one Australian performance of the year in the Drum Media writers poll. Expect some big things from this 7 piece.

What's critics have said:

'(We Lost the sea) are capable of producing music that is on-par — if not better than — the vast majority of what is offered internationally. I only hope a day will come where bands such as We Lost the Sea get the attention they serve on the world stage" - Metalobsession.net

"We Lost The Sea are a reckoning force, and a breath of fresh air when everyone all, but thought a genre was dead. It wasn’t it was just being reinvented down under." - blackcountryrock.org (US)

"The compostitions are thoughtful, the performances faultless. This all adds up to an aural journey packed with emotion, tension, drifting highs and intense, crushing lows that treads an unexpected path" - Thisisnotascene.com

Lyrics

Barkhan Charge

Written By: Chris Torpy

HERE WE ARE.
WE GIANTS SWIM, BETWEEN THE EYES OF THE DEEP.
OUR SPIRITS COLLIDE, INTERTWINED.
HIS RIGHT-HAND MAN, AN EMPTY VESSEL.
A TROOPER IN COMMAND, KNOW NOTHING BUT TO SERVE.

A TEN THOUSAND YEAR MARCH.
WHERE WILL WE SLEEP, WHEN WILL WE SLEEP?
IN THE SOIL WE LIE.

DENSE, WITH FEAR.
IN THE SOIL WE LIE.

IN THE SOIL WE LYE, NUMB AND DEPRIVED, NO STRUCTURE BINDS US.
AWAITING THE SMILE OF A KING, A PASSING GLIMPSE OF NIGHT AND DAY,
GIVES US A SIGN, WE MUST PREVAIL.
HOLDING ON.

NO MAN OR BEAST WILL SLOW US ON OUR CLIMB,
HOLDING ON.

ONWARD AWAY FROM VIOLENT BIRTH,
INTO ANOTHER REALM.

MOVING ON.
(I GUESS I'M MOVING ON)

With Grace

Written By: Chris Torpy

WHERE ARE YOU QUEEN OF THE MOON?

I'VE DREAMT OF MOSAIC LANDSCAPES, AND SKIES FULL OF DIAMONDS.
HANGING LOW OVER VALLEYS,
IN WHICH NEW LIFE RUNS THICK.
WHERE DELICATE WHISPERS SET SAIL INTO THE WIND.
ASSURING THAT I HAVE FOUND, AND BECOME MIDDLE EARTH.
AND CENTURIES WILL PASS AND FADE AT RAPID PACE.
FOR THE GIVING TO THE SOIL, WE WORSHIP THE LAND.
AND THIS LUCID WAY OF REST IS HOW I WANT TO REMAIN.
CONVERGING THROUGH THE VOID, FINALLY PASSING ON.
CONTENTLY, WITH GRACE.

OUR SUNS SPEAK IN TONGUE UNKNOWN TO MAN.
OUR SUNS SPEAK IN TONGUE UNKNOWN TO ALL.

Forgotten People

Written By: Belinda Licciardello

This spring 
time to fly 
pink fairy floss 
riding high 
over the rooftops 
beyond the moon 
oh can you see me
waving from my room 

The pretty lights that I'm spying
my blue dress is ready and ironed 
Oh I will be brave when I ride 

Oh sweet child 
it's just a peek 
you can't be here 
here with me 
you can't be here 
ordinary people you're not free 

Fire in the sky 
smoke stacked up high 
ordinary people 
you're going to die 

Are you ready I'm unsteady 
are you ready for 
are you ready I'm unsteady 
are you ready for the night to fall 

I'll shine over you you'll shine over me 
forgotten people
