Lotic has announced a new EP 'Sparkling Water', which is set for release on July 1st and features reworks of tracks from her recent album 'Water', which came out in October 2021. The new EP features original brass compositions and was recorded at live at JRS in Berlin. The first track from the record "Always You (Sparkling)" is streaming here and on all your favourite streaming and download services.
Lotic’s debut album Power, released in 2018, transformed feelings of fear and vulnerability into a consolidation of personal agency and strength. The record was praised for its polished production style and its narrative reflections on race, sexuality, and gender. The follow up to this was Lotic's latest release Water, the bewitchingly intimate 2021 album for Houndstooth, which was a stunning revelation; a tender meditation on love’s losses and lifeforce, timelines, bloodlines and resilience.
Tracks from Water have been transformed with arrangements by Hilary Jeffery for Lotic's new EP 'Sparkling Water'. The record also features Orlando de Boeykens (tuba), Baron Arnold (trombone), Kelly O’Donohue (trumpet/trombone) and was mastered by recording engineer was Jose Torelli. Recorded in sections, the EP was intentionally left sparse to contrast with the high production value of the album, and highlight the brass and composition.
