Lost and Found is the debut EP from Indonesian band Guntingkuku (My Scissors) who I can find next to nothing about. The band certainly put the POP in indiepop as demonstrated on the recent single Leisure Time and second track Shooting Star both of which are well crafted, melodic songs. There is plenty here (hear?) that makes them stand out when compared against their peers. However, it’s on the EP’s closing track Something in You that gives them an edge. It’s a beautifully constructed track with articulate vocals and wistful, pleasing melodies. Think China Crisis mixed with Black with a hint of Blueboy and you could be halfway there.
Lost and Found is out now on CDR and digital formats via Shiny Happy Records.
