Even before the turn of the year, The Lost Poets, one of our fav indie rock bands, promised fans a brand new single in January. They kept anticipation up with a series of Facebook posts, a number of them featuring the back of a postcard, at the top of which was scribbled ‘Riviera Keys’. Well, the single is here with us finally, more than a week early; the scheduled release date was Jan 25. The song is as gritty and introspective as anything we’ve heard from the enigmatic Swedish duo, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Turns out the barely-legible doodling on the postcard were the partly visible lyrics to Riviera Keys. It appears that the band was inspired by some moments of solitude on the shores of French Riviera. Hopefully, the exotic seaside location inspired more than one song from The Lost Poets.
