While driving, I’ve found myself listening to more of Phonte’s singing adventures (because I tell myself they’re easy to singalong to), by default listening to more & more of Carlitta. Together they compliment each other well but she’s more than capable of standing alone. On “Lose Your Way,” she goes solo over a soft arrangement by Nicolay. A short & sweet single that serves as an lead single for Nic’s City Lights 2: Shibuya.[audio:http://www.nicolaymusic.com/media/downloads/nicolay_feat_carlitta_durand-lose_your_way_%5Bsingle_mix%5D.mp3%5D
According to the PR, City Lights 2 will be “a deeply personal homage to the Tokyo district of Shibuya that illustrates both the grandeur of Japan’s age-old heritage (“Meiji Shrine, “Rain In Ueno Park”, “The Inner Garden”) as well as the hectic city life of one of the world’s busiest metropolitan areas.” The album drops on 9.15 on Foreign Exchange Music/Hard Boiled.
