ALEX THE ASTRONAUT SHARES NEW VIDEO FOR ‘LOST’

Alex The Astronaut

Sydney-born singer, songwriter and storyteller Alex The Astronaut (Alex Lynn) shares the visual accompaniment for ‘Lost‘ today: the latest single taken from her forthcoming debut album The Theory Of Absolutely Nothing, due out Friday 21 August and available for pre-order here.

Alex says: “The video for lost was really just my manager Bill and I mucking around with a green screen that one of his friends let us borrow. We’d been shooting a live show and so we were allowed twenty minutes to use the screen.

We had no video experience between us but plenty of unfounded confidence. We started filming with me just jumping like hopscotch around the stage singing along to the song. In some shots you can see me looking off to the left and laughing at Bill.

Our plan was to make all the backgrounds places that you could be lost, like underwater, a deserted island, and in space because I’m an astronaut. The geniuses Tat and Kat from Peach Collective came along and took the chaotic green screen footage we got and made it what it is. We wanted it to be outrageous and use as many effects as they could and they made it even cooler than I could have imagined it could be.” 

Following a triple j premiere, ‘Lost‘ was added to high rotation at the station and has also enjoyed praise and support from The GuardianRolling Stone, NMEJunkeeMusic Feeds and Happy Magazine, among others. 

Alex The Astronaut has always had a supernatural knack for capturing human experience in song. On The Theory Of Absolutely Nothing, she explores friendship, love, loss, pain and change, weaving a constellation of stories about the personal reckonings that come with growing up. The album features ‘Lost‘ as well as the anthemic ‘Happy Song’,  ‘I Think You’re Great’, ‘I Like To Dance’ and ‘Split The Sky’.

Alex’s debut album follows on from two highly acclaimed EPs (To Whom It May Concern and See You Soon) and a slew of big singles, which have had a way of landing at just the right moment. Her breakout track ‘Already Home’ arrived in 2016 and features the now-iconic line ‘And there’s billionaires for presidents / And parking fines at hospitals’. In 2017, she returned with ‘Not Worth Hiding’, an open letter to her 16 year old self that details the journey to her own sexuality.

The track arrived as Australia was debating marriage equality and became the unofficial anthem of the Vote Yes movement. The mammoth single then went on to receive support from Elton John on his Beats 1 radio show and score #23 in triple j’s Hottest 100.

Alex has since performed at a number of renowned international festivals including The UK’s Great EscapePrimavera Sound in Spain and Neighbourhood Festival in Manchester. Back at home, she’s lapped the country on a sold out national headline tour, played a stack of festivals including Byron Bay’s Splendour in the Grass, and graced the stage at triple j’s One Night Stand
