Immediately reminiscent of pop rock/indie bands across the pond, PK’s The Lost Boys Sessions is a sultry escape into the minds and talents of it’s members; Travis Hawley (Vocals), Nick Fotinakes (Guitar), Matt DePauw (Guitar), Mikel Vk (Bass), and Rico Rodriguez (Drums).
In this short 17 minute EP, tracks like “Seawolves” and “Chase The Sky” stand out with their ease of listening and smooth transitions, while the “Some Nights” of the EP bring energy and optimism to even the saddest of lyrics. Example: Take lyrics like “Those days are gone and I can’t get them back and now I can’t explain how we lost it but it’s gone, it won’t come back” (“I Know”) and throw in electronic highs and rhythmic drums and suddenly the mood isn’t looking so melancholy.
Although it’s true that PK’s lyrics might be consistently solemn, their musicianship is smooth, leading their listeners into a calm comfortable state of self-reflection. Won’t you join them on this journey?
