One of the great questions of music is "What's in a band name?" Sometimes it's beautiful nonsense; I refuse to believe that Neutral Milk Hotel has any meaning other than Jeff Mangum thought those words go together. Sometimes, it's an homage; the Rolling Stones named themselves after a Muddy Waters track. But can a name be self-prophecy. For pop-rock band Lost Element
, they may have stumbled upon just that for modern pop-rock.
We're premiering the band's video for the track "Twenty Five" today and it's a pop banger. With that anthemic summer feel and a sense of never growing up, the track and video capture that point in your life where maybe you should be feeling a little older but you're clinging on to your youth as best you can. The track is off their upcoming record, Stereo Dream
, due out this year and be sure to catch this act live as they tour the country and as a band that's opened for Sublime with Rome, Hoobastank, and 311 in the past, it will be sure to be a good show.
