The deep beats and guitar that open ‘Let’s Get Lost’ draw you into the single before the softer tones of the first verse hit. There is a building feeling to the melody that travels from rather soothing to moving. The disco tones are woven into the bluesy vibes that Filice is better known for. The clapping tones in the background of the melody have your head moving and you feeling that you are not alone. There is a really light feeling to the melody that enhances the uplifting vibes of the single.
There is a vulnerable and tender feeling to her vocals as she traverses the feeling of discovering who you really are. On the chorus, she takes your hand and spins you around to the light tones of the melody while her vocals put a smile on your face. This light feeling dips for the next verse when insecurities rear their head and you are filled with the questioning of self-value that many people face. Through all of this, Filice embraces you in a friendly hug while letting you know you are not alone in these feelings and that you will be able to move past them.
