Superimposing Everly Brothers-style harmonies atop lilting guitar and doo-wop-inspired instrumentation, Camille Wind Weatherford and Casey Jane Reece-Kaigler transmit messages of disillusionment, enduring romanticism, and tenacious hope.
Named after a river in the duo’s native Oregon and cultivated in the New Orleans DIY scene where the pair met, The Lostines’ chemistry is both forward-looking and a throwback, born of seemingly disparate aesthetics — classic country, Louisiana dance hall, mid-century girl groups. Since joining forces in 2013, the Lostines have been transporting fans with bare and ethereal lullabies, smart harmonies, and wry call-and-response, all the while tempering that sincerity with an ample dose of tongue-in-cheek goofiness.
