The Lost & Found

Written, performed, produced, mixed and everything by Mike Cornes

Released to the world on 27 November 2012


Included in the BBC Introducing Mixtape, broadcast on BBC 6Music on April 29th 2013

"Last November we enjoyed his hilariously sardonic lofi gem Your Band on the Introducing Mixtape, yet this is almost as different a track – emotionally, texturally and sonically – as it’s possible to imagine. Poise, space and clarity are all to the fore here, though aligned with the same forensic lyrical precision that marked out the previous single."
 - Tom Robinson, [BBC Introducing Mixtape April 29th 2013]


Let's take a walk in the woods
Seeking out damaged goods
In the lost and found
Of this hallowed ground.

Hallelujah, sing your sins
Rescue all the life that begins
In the lost and found
Of this happy town.

In the lost and found
If you'd like to stick around.

Demon wishes, hard-wired hope
Maybe raise the periscope
Laughing as the flames bite deep
Hold your breath there's secrets to keep
In the lost and found
Where our dreams abound.
In the lost and found...

I saw you
I saw you swimming there
You saw me
You saw me swimming there
They saw us
They saw us swimming there
In the lost and found
In the lost and found
By the Western Sound.
