Why do we like this?

London-based singer songwriter Gizmo Varillas has dropped the first single from his forthcoming 2018 sophomore album. Entitled "Losing You," the track is a poignant folk inspired indie adventure written in response to the Orlando shooting. The film clip for the track came accompanied with this short but powerful message from Varillas:

"I was really touched by what I saw on the train that same day. I was on my way to work, and I saw two men sitting opposite me, crying, holding hands. I must have internalised that, and the next day the song just flew out of my mouth, word for word. I used the name Maribel as a way of putting myself into the shoes of one of the Latin mothers who lost their child.

That song is basically a letter to her. The sad lyrics provide some sort of depth, and the happy music gives reassurance."

"Losing You" continues Varillas' experimentation with South American sounds and modern pop concepts while demonstrating his thoughtful and emotional approach to lyricism.
