This is one earworm we don't mind getting stuck in our heads.
Marie Miller is back with a new album, Letterbox, and its third track, “Lost at Sea,” is perpetually playing through our heads. The arrangement is intimate: just a quartet of guitar, cello, upright bass, and Miller on the bouzouki, a Greek instrument that sounds like a deep, haunting mandolin.

With a strong vocal, which we’ve come to expect of Miller, the love song questions whether losing yourself in a relationship can also cause you to become lost and disoriented. Her hook is emotional and catchy, while being surrounded by her talented friends only adds to the intimacy.
