Press Release:

Following in the footsteps of his 2010 release Beautiful Isolation, Chris Weeks brings us his latest Kingbastard opus ‘Lost Property’; a concept album which draws its inspiration from happening upon an old abandoned house whilst walking in the foothills of the Preseli Mountains, West Wales.

A more concise, but no less ambitious record than its predecessor, Lost Property primarily focuses inwardly on the house itself and its immediate surroundings. There are sixteen self-contained tracks, each meticulously depicting the different moods evoked upon discovery, exploration of, and departure from the property; however, each piece flows seamlessly into the next to form a picturesque, immersive and continuous soundscape, where fragile field-recordings, subtle spoken-word, and harmonious vocals rub shoulders with dusty micro-glitched grooves, retro synths, rich sub-bass, lo-fi landscapes and warped guitars; underscored with evolving, ethereal ambience.

Lost Property is the sound of Weeks’ creative imagination in full flow; immediately enveloping the listener and never relenting, tracks segue effortlessly, unveiling a unique, genre-defying collage of beautifully crafted, descriptive sonic textures that honestly encapsulate the artist’s experience and emotions.
