If you’re into the dreamy sound of the indie pop spectrum, you’re going to fall head over heels with lost spaces. lost spaces is the brainchild of singer-songwriter and musician Sam Lopez. He left Ipoh to come to KL to pursue his dreams, and the result is lost spaces, created in the comfort of his friend’s bedroom. What started as a solo project, grew into something more: his brother, Lukas Lopez plays the drums, cousin, Imran Marshall plays bass and his family friend, Keane Chua plays the guitar.

Having started in 2017, lost spaces has been playing to different audiences around Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur. Their first ever single, titled ‘fake.guitars’ was released digitally on May 11, 2018. Despite its upbeat composition, “The song came from a place of hopelessness, feeding into a somewhat cynical outlook in life. That nothing really matters, no matter what you do or how hard you try,” explained Sam.

According to the band, the inspiration behind the song is drawn from a conversation they had. “It was a conversation my friends and I had that sparked it. We were talking about ‘adult-ing’ and facing an uncertain future. You know, your regular millennial problems!”, he laughed. Inspired by that conversation, later that night Sam ended up writing what eventually became ‘fake.guitars’ . “In spite of how it started, the song evolved into a little anthem of hope, about having someone or something that keeps you going. Our relationships are what makes life worth living”, shared Sam.

Listen to ‘fake.guitars’ on Spotify.
