    **INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING COSTS**
    We sometimes receive emails from you guys asking about the high shipping costs. Australia is very far away from everything, and our postal service is struggling, so shipping costs are huge. To send one record to certain places has cost us up to $48aud. We collectively apologise on behalf of our nation. Sorry, everyone. We're working hard getting some records in all regions.

    Thanks for your endless support and patience!

about

This is the first release off We Lost The Sea's latest album 'Departure Songs'. Recorded during live tracking of the album at Studios 301 in Sydney featuring the high school girls choir from Mercy College in Chatswood.

A Gallant Gentlemen, the opening track from We Lost The Sea’s third and most adventurous record to date, is a slowly building piece that gives you a just a glimpse of the tumultuous journey to follow. This is the perfect gateway to the heart wrenching ‘Departure Songs.’ The tracks tells the story of Lawrence Oates, an army captain and explorer who walked off into the freezing Antarctic night on a expedition gone wrong, in an attempt to give his life to save the rest of his team. He knew he had become a burden on his friends. He knew their chances of survival would improve without him. So off he walked, alone, into oblivion. An opening track to a record that is steeped so much in the ideas of life, death and hope.

All music written and composed by We Lost The Sea.
The title of this song is named after a painting by John Charles Dollman.
Choir section composed and arranged by We Lost The Sea and the Mercy College Choir.
