The band states:
“Greetings all thee!
Let us take a step forward
and underneath our robes,
for a brief moment in time
and out of our characters.
A lullaby for the lost,
without the chance for adventures.
Close your eyes and feel no fright,
lay down to rest, without a burden in sight.
Yours sincerely, Lost in Grey”
Anne Lill states about the video and the finnish lyrics:
“Varjo” is a song that couldn’t have been written in any other language than Finnish – and indeed, I did try. For over six months I struggled trying to find the words in English, but without success and I nearly gave up trying. Only when I finally embraced the “will of the song” – that the song wanted to be a lullaby for the lost written in Finnish – the words would come to me. Musically the song focuses on Emily’s vocals and Harri’s piano, so I also wanted the focus of the video being on them. On the day we were filming the music video it was supposed to be thunder and rain, but somehow the storm avoided us completely, and eventually the clouds faded and we were given a beautiful evening sun.”
Harri states about the song and the composition:
“It seems to be some kind of recurrent theme on our albums that there is always one song which becomes by far the most personal song on the album, and ‘Varjo’ represents that on this album to me. Obviously we all face hardships in life which might at the time feel too overwhelming, and my way of dealing with these emotions is writing them into music. Even though the song has its roots in loss, I hope this song will in it’s own way bring comfort to someone, as it has done to me.”

About LOST IN GREY
The Finnish theatrical metal band LOST IN GREY was founded in 2013 by composer, vocalist and
keyboardist Harri Koskela and lyricist and vocalist Anne Lill Rajala. What originally was planned to be
merely a short-term project soon grew into a band. Inspired by a large variety of musical genres,
literature and the world itself, Lost in Grey creates multifaceted music bringing elements of drama
to their songs as well as live performances. Now the band is on the verge of unleashing their 3rd
full-length album UNDER THE SURFACE in summer 2021 via Reaper Entertainment Europe.
Followed by the previous album releases, THE WASTE LAND (2019) and THE GREY REALMS
(2017), both which claimed great responses from audiences and media, this new album takes another
giant leap towards even greater musical adventures. The vocalists Emily Leone, Anne Lill Rajala and
Harri Koskela play the main characters within the overarching story on the albums, and bring a very
own touch to it through their diverse voice talents.
