It started with a haunting, recurring dream. State Shirt explored the underlying meaning of this dream while writing the lyrics and music for Lost Hills. With State Shirt’s alluring, atmospheric synths, seductive harmonies, a decisively 80s air, and warm, inviting production style, ArtisTech Media is ecstatic to release Lost Hills as a TuneTrack-LP today.
“I started writing music for Lost Hills as a way to set free this illusion of past and future, to let go of the nostalgia of my childhood and release the persistent, crippling anxiety over what is to come,” shares Ethan Tufts. “It’s a record inspired by the synthpop of the past, and a sentimental dream of synthpop from the future. Lost Hills is depressing music you can dance to.”
