“Portland is no stranger to great alternative and indie rock bands, and The Lovely Lost is one we can only hope will quickly rise to the top.”
“If you dismiss The Lovely Lost at surface level, thinking that you've heard it all before, and hit the skip button, you'll be missing out on a fine jewel of jangle fuzz folk grunge. You may think you've heard it all, but you haven't. Can You See Me Now? is a solid debut offering from a band with chops and ideas. Not afraid to go their own way, do their own thing or follow their own tastes and personal vision. It should be interesting to see where their trajectory takes them.”
“This is a band that we could see really catching on with the alternative market at large, as the band's songs are honest and unabashed, while remaining accessible and fun to listen to.”
“With catchy, ruthless hooks, The Lovely Lost deliver intense and memorable songs that will stick to you like musical honey. Michael Collins, the principal songwriter, creates vulnerable yet gritty strong tunes that those with a heartbeat can identify with and make their own. With such diverse offerings as "Is It You", "I Live Alone", and the homage to the great Sam Cooke with "Nothing At All", The Lovely Lost make beautiful music that you will want to get lost with over and over again.”
“Revivalist rock outfit The Lovely Lost are a special sort of band; the sort of band that pulls from the rock music of yesteryear, while managing to actually capture the spirit and the energy of the time period rather than going for a cheap imitation.”
“The best way to experience the band would be live. Seriously you should watch them live, they sound amazing.”
“The Lovely Lost weave their influences into a unique whole, transforming the familiar into something new and startling.”
"The combined vocals of Michael Collins and Jo Bewley had me hooked."
