WAITING FOR SMITH, “Lost In Your Light”
“Lost In Your Light” is the kind of song that grabs your attention immediately as the fine sum of all of its parts. It’s brought to you by relative UK newcomer (and former ski instructor) Waiting For Smith (aka Harry Lloyd), whose name comes from a drummer named Smith who never showed up for rehearsal. Harry weaves a relatable story about finding someone with whom you can share your deepest secrets and fears, allowing you to bask in their glow and vice versa. His indelible songwriting, along with an infectious guitar hook, make “Lost In Your Light” a much easier listen than what may appear on the surface. Waiting For Smith was already known to me through songs that I didn’t think were a strong as this, and I’m glad I waited. “Lost In Your Light” is much more than the ‘eccentric songwriter’ stuff that can typecast a performer. Harry has the vocal prowess to match his writing skills, which should mean many more pleasurable releases to come.
