LOST IN JAPAN – NIGHT TALKS
Indie rock band Lost in Japan craft captivating sounds that resonate with listeners around the world. “Our mission statement has always been that we’re here for you no matter what is going on in your life. Pretty much all of our songs are about overcoming obstacles and making it through hard times. Some ‘sad boy’ stuff with very uplifting chords,” frontman Addison Johnson states.
Produced by Dan Brodbeck (Helix, Headstrong, The Salads) and Matt Snell (Dua Lipa, Dermot Kennedy, Sean Hook), their sophomore LP Night Talks is “an album about therapy through friendship.” Inspired by late night drives, it’s about the type of “conversations you can have with your closest friend that you can’t have with anyone else.”
Back in high school I used to take my parents’ car (without permission) after they went to sleep and would pick up 3 of my closest friends. We would then go on driving adventures that we called “Cruises.” We would drive to Toronto, Windsor, Niagara Falls and drive back the same night. These places were 2 hours away from where we lived in London, Ontario. It was insane but these drives actually acted as a form of therapy for us. No one else was on the road and we just talked and listened to music the whole way there and back. We talked about whatever was on our mind and there was no unsafe topic. It only felt fitting then to call our debut album Night Talks.
Night Talks is a labor of love that was 2 years in the making. We’re proud of the work put into this project and had a blast making it. Now to begin working on the next record.
