Gentleman Speaker - The Lost Art of Losing Battles

“The Lost Art of Losing Battles” is the first single from Gentleman Speaker's forthcoming album The Well Between Continents, out October 8. The single recalls a brief but very passionate romance between lead vocalist Tim Brecht and a traveler he met during a trip to Switzerland.

The dynamic track moves from powerful alt-emo to more subdued folk-rock; think Built To Spill meets The Avett Brothers. “Why did you come so far to see a falling star burn up and fall apart” references Brecht’s struggles with vulnerability and how the end of that romance affected him, while also being a literal reference to a meteor shower Brecht saw with his partner.
