Perth-born musician and songwriter on the rise, Blake Rose has shared the visual for his latest single, Lost. Directed by Matt Sav and filmed on location in Perth, the moody clip shows the musicianin his hometown, illuminated under the evening sky.
Of the video, Rose shares: “This is the first official music video I have filmed in well over a year, so I was excited to finally be able to create something visual for ‘Lost’. I have been in my hometown of Perth since the beginning of the pandemic, so was grateful to be able to shoot something here, especially when so much of the world is still on lock down. I hope everyone enjoys the video as much as I enjoyed making it.”
Having gained traction worldwide, Lost was added by Taylor Swift to one of her Apple playlists, propelling the songs reach to new heights. The track conceptually navigates having let someone go, only to realise you made the wrong choice. Speaking of the creative process behind the track, Rose added: “Lost started with a guitar riff, which was quite a surreal experience as I was playing it before it even existed. I was holding my guitar strumming and all of a sudden my ears shifted their focus to my guitar and I just heard that riff going. I just knew there was something special there... I could hear the potential in it straight away.”
With almost 100 million combined global streams across his entire catalogue, Rose recently released a stunning live rendition of the track, taped in Los Angeles, pre-lock-down, that has already surpassed half a million views. Complete with string arrangements, the video showcases artist, songwriter and producers effortless ability to perform live, highlighting with his pure vocals juxtaposed by luscious electric-guitar-driven melodies, and knack for writing insanely infectious alternative pop songs.
