"The sound was defined from the start with del Castillo and Ippolito desiring multi-instrumental songs that could create a wide contrast of feeling and context.
There’s a gentle timbre in del Castillo’s voice that soothes like Natalie Merchant. Her rich vocal character is further complemented by the doubling and back up harmonies that in themselves ring bells from a ‘60s era Latin number. The combination fits well and makes the album feel like a vintage gem, going in and out of modern indie and golden soul." review from Equal Ground magazine.

”Foreign” is The lovelost’s first full-length offering. Released in April 2013, “Foreign” is a fusion of indie, alternative rock, and folk, with some Latin flair.
Their sound is reminiscent of 10,000 Maniacs , John and Mary, The Mother Hips , and Pixies, but they not dated or overly-shaped by these influences. For instance, I can hear a Pixies influence in them.
The lovelost aim for melody. On they other hand, they’re not afraid to detune and make some noise. So although those aforementioned bands (as well as The Mountain Goats ) may serve as signposts for The lovelost’s tastes, they aren’t hemmed in by it.
