lives lost let me down slowly

Lives Lost is a group from Hershey, PA. Their tasteful yet heavy cover of Alec Benjamin’s hit “Let Me Down Slowly” begins acoustic, but quickly turns into a more intense song after just a single phrase. The band added new harmonies with tasteful vocal distortion and layers and layers of wailing guitars. Then, when the words “Let me down” hit the intensity increases yet again.

Lives Lost has taken an already-great song and made it into something even catchier- This is an alt cover with some serious gravity to it. They even add new musical content with a breakdown…just to rein it in again and close gently, leaving us with a sense of melancholy at the end.
