UK Artist of the Week: lotusbliss

Indie-rock trio lotusbliss are back and they sound better than ever. Their new single “Nightshade” instantly packs a punch and is a perfect introduction to what we can expect from their upcoming EP.

Channeling the likes of Foals and Wolf Alice, lotusbliss bring together jangling guitar, scuzzy synths, and pulsating percussion creating a sound that is undeniably impressive and oozing with finesse. The harmonies are also 100% on point throughout. Talking about the single, the band elaborate, “It’s about being involved with something or someone that is unhealthy, though the unhealthy nature is not immediately visible.”

“Like solanine (the poison found in nightshade plants like potatoes and tomatoes), in small doses it’s too subtle to notice; the corrupting force goes undetected. In larger quantities, though, it can be all consuming and fatal, like with the infamous Deadly Nightshade flower. Its scientific name, Atropa Belladonna, comes from Greek mythology—Atropos has the thread of your life in her hands and is poised to cut it.”

lotusbliss are three brothers originally from Canterbury, UK. Their new single “Nightshade” is the first single to be released from their upcoming EP “An Aching Sea,” due in stores on 2nd September 2022.
