Multi-instrumentalists Josh Rubin and Thomas Van Schaick AKA Sadblood combine their musical efforts to unveil their debut single “Lost.” “Lost” is an ocean of hushed trap beats, crystalline vocals, and melancholic hooks. The first installment in a series of singles that will tell a story about life, love, grief, and inner-peace, “Lost” is an intellectual delicacy.
For fans of emo-pop and laid-back trap, “Lost” is an impressive debut from Sadblood, give a listen below:
Although Josh and Thomas collaborate long distance between Austin and LA, their artistic synchronization can’t be dulled. Prior to the launch of Sadblood, the twosome were refining and growing their individual careers. Josh’s ethereal and versatile led to topline releases on labels by the likes of Proximity, Dim Mak, Subsidia, Lowly, and more. Thomas, previously known as Sacred Sciences, recently redefined his solo act and ushered in a new era of his career as Hive Mind. Classically trained, Hive Mind synthesizes metal, hardstyle, and downtempo beats to create a genre-bending production style. Together, Sadblood brings to life genre-ambiguous soundscapes distilled with poetic and thought-provoking storytelling.
“These are my flaws, this is what makes me who I am. You can either accept them, love me for me and come along for the ride or fuck off and stop trying to change me for your own selfish reasons.”
