[ORCHESTRAL POP] Within the opening seconds of Lost in the Trees’ latest release, Past Life, several things might jump to mind: falsetto-y harmonies reminiscent of Local Natives, bits vaguely resembling Arcade Fire, the feeling of staring out the window on a moving train. It would be a mistake to pin the group to one sound, though, as the quartet’s third album shifts away from its established folk sound toward a swelling mix of the classical and the electronic. As delicate piano, hazy guitar lines and harmonious arpeggios rise and fall throughout, singer Ari Pickers muses softly on fleetingness and loss. But the real fun comes when the album mixes digitized instrumentation with billowing orchestral elements—like, say, a call-and-response between a pulsing synth and a jazzy French horn.
