Lead singer/songwriter Torquil Campbell explained during the release party for No One Is Lost
that whilst the record isn't a Christmas album, he sees a comparison. The titanic title track finds him singing: Put your hands up, 'cause everybody dies
Asked by Billboard
magazine how such lyrics reflect the most wonderful time of the year, he replied: "Well, it's like singing 'Auld Lang Syne
,' right? That's what New Year's Eve is about – acknowledging that everybody dies, and that you're one step closer to it ... and hoping that you're going to be the exception."
"That blind faith is what keeps everybody going, that joy in the face of despair."
