Danish songwriter and producer, Baby Blood, is set to release ‘White Lotus’, via The Big Oil Recording Company on May 20th.
The beautifully psychedelic track is one of two lead singles from her forthcoming EP, Await The Coven; a pulsating and trippy ride through the soulfulness of R&B and the intricacy of electronica.
“‘White Lotus’ is about the struggle of achieving a state of mental purification through the powers of nature, while existing in a highly intoxicated world,” tells Lucy Love, the Copenhagen-based artist behind the masked moniker. “Being surrounded by nature fluently illustrates how the past, present and future are part of the infinite cycle of existence, birth, life, departure and return.”
Sewn together by a bed of sweeping synth harmonies and woozy, warped vocals, ‘White Lotus’ is the artist’s most energetic yet brooding track to date, reminiscent of acts like Flying Lotus, Purity Ring and Kelela. Her seductive sound bleeds into a plethora of genres such as trip-hop, whilst taking influence from the aesthetic references of Japanese samurai culture and Tibetan meditation.
Hidden behind a Mexican wrestling disguise, Baby Blood’s image is immediately dissociated from vanity and narcissism, creating a palpable and potent sense of mystery in her music.
‘White Lotus’ is out this Friday, 20th May. Await The Coven follows on 17th June.
