After releasing their new highly anticipated EP “Pretend To Sleep” and sharing video for “Enough” and “Still”, Italian post hardcore act What We Lost are lifting the lid on a music video for their track “Lungs” featuring footage from their time on the road.
The clip shot by Absence Films showcases the sweat-stained energy of the band’s shows and captures the special bond of the band members.
“The entire EP refers to a recent period of my life, when I had to leave my hometown for work, and was left by my ex-girlfriend around the same time,” shares frontman Simone Galeotti “I felt like my whole world was crumbling. The lyrics glide through the different phases of this period: solitude, anger, regret and love.”
The EP was produced by Federico Ascari, mixed by Bob Cooper (Nervus, Cutdreams, WSTR) and mastered by Grant Berry (Stand Atlantic, Deaf Havana). On “Pretend To Sleep”, What We Lost’s trademark post-hardcore emo sound is contaminated by hints of shoegaze and post-rock.

What would you do if your life fell apart?
WHAT WE LOST found their answer in music. Their blend of melodic hardcore spaces from energetic to introspective, and back. Debut EP “SHADES”, produced, mixed and mastered by Federico Ascari, is a four track record influenced by the biggest US and UK acts in melodic hardcore. With “SHADES”, What We Lost established themselves as one of the most promising underground Italian bands and secured opening slots for bands such as Acres, Casey, Canvas, Napoleon, Burning Down Alaska and more. After the experiences made possible by this first record, What We Lost took it a step forward when releasing singles “Beds” and “Chamomile” between 2017 and 2018, both produced by Federico Ascari and mixed and mastered by Johnny Renshaw (Casey, Elijah, Blood Youth, Dream State). The singles were released on world famous Youtube channel Dreambound, which opened the band to audiences in the UK, US, Australia & Asia.
Both tracks were handpicked for important digital editorials – “Beds” was added to the Spotify playlist “New Metal Tracks” (440k+ followers), while “Chamomile” was featured in Alternative Press‘s “13 songs you need to hear”, as well as numerous other appearances in playlists drafted by Alternative Press and Kerrang. Thanks to these singles and their unique live shows, the five-piece has gone on to play the most important clubs in Italy, and appeared as support for the Italian tour dates of Fever 333, Underoath, Starset, Tiny Moving Parts and Silent Planet.
