NEW ALBUM: LOST KINGS | IT'S NOT YOU, IT'S ME (EP)
Consisting of Los Angeles-based duo Rob Gainley and Nick Shanholtz, Lost Kings do not attach anything but high-grade production to their name. With every branch of their new EP, "It’s Not You, It's Me," Lost Kings have managed to both imaginatively reengineer their execution and maintain the unique charm that has propelled the Los Angeles duo to their current footing and the project’s fourth piece, “Runaway” with Destiny Rogers, has validated that claim again. Joining the "It's Not You, It's Me" EP family of “Hurt” with DeathbyRomy, “Oops” with both Ty Dolla $ign and GASHI, and most recently, “Mountains” with MASN, “Runaway” is the Lost Kings brace at their finest. Lost Kings keep the project’s direction in check on “Runaway,” resulting in a late-night ballad that hires Destiny Rogers’ blinding sonics for a memorable fourth single. The duo spoke on the release’s course of action, explaining, “When we started this record, we were in Palm Springs quarantining and just working on music. We’ve wanted to work with Destiny Rogers for a while, so when she sent the idea for ‘Runaway,’ we were stoked. She has such a distinct vibe and sound, [and] we wanted to match that with the production. We thought giving the groove of a Miami bass feel while using the guitar to highlight her voice would be a great combo and are so happy with how this record turned out.” Lost Kings have risen through new producer talents gaining over 800 million combined streams worldwide. In the process, they have released various original music and remixes, released two EP’s, "Paper Crowns" and "Lost Angeles," and major sold-out markets across the US.
