Ahead of the release of their album Menneskekollektivet, Lost Girls dropped the trippy single “Losing Something.”. The track features Jenny Hval reciting lines from The Policeman’s Beard Is Half Constructed, a collection of poems from the early Eighties created by the computer program Racter. “More than iron/More than lead/More than gold I need electricity,” she sings over Håvard Volden’s swirling loops of percussion.
