CompositionEdit

"Get Lost" is a pop song with some country and teen influences with a tempo of 128 beats for minute. [1] The chorus contains prolonged vocals and the bridge is made of anthemic howls. The lyrics speak about free life and they are characterized by punky expressions and shouts similar to those of their hit "I Love It". The duo cited Miley Cyrus as a source of inspiration in an interview with E! News in their pursue of success, calling her very able to balance work and play. They said Miley "would never risk a show by going out" and is "down-to-earth," "hardworking" and "very professional." [2]

Critical receptionEdit

The critics praised the song calling it "undeniably effective", but also "not enough different from their other hits". Sterogum defined it as a gleaming weapons-grade hook-delivery machine with a chorus that sounds bigger than the known universe. [3] Speaking about it, SPIN reviewed the song saying that "Some will balk at the totemic, EDM-flavored synth parts that function as the building blocks of this song, but the sweetness of the duo’s gang vocals more than round off those sonic jagged edges" [4] Idolator.com called "Get Lost" the "stuff of rebellious and youthful gold, as the girls escape the world in a sea of storming beats and battle cries". [5]
