It's been three years since Lotic, a Berlin-based producer of experimental electronics, unleashed her album Power. After returning last year with a single called "Cocky," Lotic is back once more with a new song called "Come Unto Me," a new song from her upcoming project Water.
The new song, a clattering and funereal free-association laser show reminiscent of Millenium-era Björk, comes with a remarkable music video directed by Matt Lambert. Lotic plays an undersea entity living inside a world of transcendent color. In a press statement, Lotic said the visuals were inspired by the slave trade. “1.8 million Africans died on the Middle Passage; their bodies were thrown into the Atlantic. Had their cells been able to adapt to this new ecosystem, and thrive and multiply, perhaps a glorious new culture and history would have been possible."
Lotic will release Water on October 29 via Houndstooth.
