If I could have my pick of bands to cover any song and put their own flavor on it, Trails And Ways would have to be cresting near the top of that list. This time the group decided to take on Frank Ocean’s “Lost”, one of the standouts off of his Channel Orange LP, giving it that familiar Trails sound that falls somewhere between sun-soaked reverie and sunset poignancy.
I don’t know Portugese, obviously, so I’m unsure about the new parts of this Trails And Ways cover. I do not know if the band have replaced Ocean’s words with the equivalent or completely re-written those parts. I suppose in some ways it doesn’t particularly matter. This is a beautiful rendition without me even knowing what it’s saying.
In finding the bossa in the soul of “Lost”, Trails And Ways have delivered yet another gem of a cover.
