lotusbliss – Nightshade

Canterbury-based indie outfit lotusbliss return with a new single today, and with it further proof of this group’s unparalleled skills at crafting superb experimental sounds.

Lifted from the trio’s upcoming ‘An Aching Sea’ EP (out in September), ‘Nightshade’ is a gorgeously atmospheric and emotive fusion of indie, rock and electronica.

“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”.

With early praise from the likes of BBC Introducing, 6Music, Earmilk and Atwood Magazine, lotusbliss should be firmly placed on your indie radars.
