Josh McGovern “Love Left Lost” – Listen

Love Left Lost is the new single from Brighton singer-songwriter Josh McGovern. Blessed with a deep baritone with a fantastic timbre it’s fortunate that he also has the knack for writing dark and moody folk songs that vibrate with tension and a sombre precognition of bleakness to come. Josh has said of this song “I wrote ‘Love Left Lost’ after falling off the rails and spending a few months in my own head. It was in the dead of winter and I had felt inadequate in the wake of some rough times, so I locked myself away in my old friend Jim’s house whilst he was away and wrote the song. It may sound clichéd but I’ve always found writing music helps me get through those phases we all experience from time to time”.  Whilst it’s heavy stuff it’s mostly heavy with portent and meaning.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan’s music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That’s not much to ask, is it?
