When I first heard “Nunca,” I knew that no other song in 2012 would capture the essence of summer as well as Trails and Ways‘ debut track. With a sound self-described as “bossa nova dream pop,” the Oakland outfit allows the soul of of their music to wash over you like a wave onto the shore. So naturally, I was immediately transfixed by their new cover of Frank Ocean‘s “Lost.” Trails and Ways take their lo-fi indie pop and Portuguese lyrics and transform the minimalist R&B original into something of their own. It’s an ode to the constant traveller, not entirely sure where they are the moment, but knowing that they need to keep moving to get somewhere else. Download a free copy of the cover below.
