First catching our ears last month with the synth-laden rocker “idwbs,” André Vargas Roo’s lost,there project again impresses with melodic songwriting that incorporates rock and synth-pop. “looking for” touts a more electronic-driven direction, comparative to the steady rock pulsations of “idwbs.” Lo-fi rhythms and a lush synth pad contemplate yearning vocals initially, joined shortly by a reflective guitar line, evolving more prominently in the second half. “What are you looking for?” the emotive chorus asks, capped off by a stellar guitar accompaniment in the final minute. The track’s evolution from more understated synth-forward yearning into expressive guitar tones plays with seamless entrancement. “looking for” is another success from lost,there.
