In a press statement, vocalist and guitarist Malia Wearn explained that she was compelled to write ‘Lost Sun’ after hearing the guitar riff, which reminded her of “warm hypnotic Australian summer days.”

“I spent many days in my childhood lying on the grass in our backyard, lulled by the warmth,” she said.

“The words came out all at once, written in my current Aussie backyard. I wanted the lyrics to tie into the memory… to invoke the haze and the heat and the lethargy.”

Placement’s ‘Lost Sun’ EP will be released on October 22.
