San Francisco, California – Up-and-coming indie pop/folk sensation, Joya, has released her latest single “Lost Boy, Lost City”, and it's set to be the anthem of the summer. With a seemingly playful and upbeat sound at first listen, the song ingeniously unveils layers of longing and nostalgia through its lyrics, reminiscent of the complexities and introspection seen in recent indie sensations.

“Lost Boy, Lost City” captures the ambivalence of looking back at a past love; where the heart finds itself fondly reminiscing yet knowing that moving forward is the only way. 

The song’s Indie Pop/Rock sound creates a lively backdrop, but as the lyrics unravel, the listeners are pulled into a story of past romance, city streets, and poignant goodbyes. The track's melody carries an effervescent charm while the lyrics imbue a sense of wistful reflection. 

The chorus leaves an especially indelible mark: “When you knew me, as a lost boy in a lost cit6, 26 and pretty sure, this dreamer with his head in clouds had found a place to land…I wonder if you see me now the way you saw me then”

The brilliance of “Lost Boy, Lost City” lies in its ability to marry two different emotions through sound and words. The buoyant instrumentation represents the light-hearted memories, while the lyrics delve into the deeper emotions of longing and curiosity. It's a song that will have you tapping your feet, even as your heart wistfully considers the paths once travelled.

Joya has seamlessly infused the emotional depth and storytelling reminiscent of beloved indie artists, with her own brand of charisma and pop/rock sensibilities. This makes “Lost Boy, Lost City” not just a song, but an experience that resonates with the listener’s own memories and emotions.

“Lost Boy, Lost City” is available on all major streaming platforms.
