Corbu x Jimi Goodwin - Lost & Found [EP]
Brooklyn dream-psych duo Corbu have teamed up with one of their heroes, legendary Doves frontman Jimi Goodwin, to create ‘Lost & Found,’ the title track from their upcoming Lost & Found EP (out June 4th, 2021 on Trash Casual and 3 Beat). ‘Lost & Found’ is an upbeat, danceable slice of electronic indie pop, produced by Goodwin as a dubbed-out, reggae-tinged trip to the sun.
After releasing a pair of singles in 2020, the song is Corbu’s proper comeback following their debut album Crayon Soul, mixed by Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, MGMT, Neon Indian). ‘Lost & Found’ also comes on the heels of Doves’ album The Universal Want, which peaked at number 1 on the 2020 UK album charts.
Jonathan Graves of Corbu wrote the chorus “You run around looking, you run around looking / You can hold yourself / Come on and hold yourself” based on his experience of being adopted at four months old. Graves says: “I wrote it to myself. I was kind of messed up and couldn’t calm myself down, and I realized a lot of it had to do with the first four months of my life. Your brain is still forming, and it’s an eternity for a baby when you don’t have anyone to connect with. Amanda and I think the song applies to everyone, to some extent – you have to learn to be your own parent and be your own friend.”
Lost & Found EP follows Crayon Soul and two previous EPs, which earned praise from NME, The Guardian, NYLON, Stereogum and more, propelling Corbu to festival appearances at Austin City Limits and Electric Forest, as well as a US West Coast Tour with Bloc Party.
