Lotus releases the new studio album, Eat the Light. It’s a first for Lotus, an album with vocals on every song. Guest singers appear throughout ranging from soulful to indie, male and female, electronic and rock. The tracks bubble with contagious dance energy and blast into orbit with sing-along choruses. Tightly produced yet raw grooves recall sounds of The Talking Heads, Jamiroquai, and LCD Soundsystem.

Lotus premiered the first single, “Eats the Light,” earlier this year with Billboard noting “the track’s urgent drive and stripped-down arrangement, a nod to Talking Heads’ Remain In Light era.” Denver based singer/songwriter/producer Gabe Otto (Pan Astral), who performed the David Byrne role in Lotus’ Talking Heads Deconstructed shows, takes the vocals duties.

“Move Too Fast” is an evocative and playful track with a skittering drum beat and insistent, syncopated bass line. It evokes the feeling of weightlessness while having a head-nodding beat and vocals by Johnny Fissinger (Philadelphia’s Damn Right!).

“Anti-Gravity” features LA-based singer Oriel Poole whose seductive vocals draw influence from Erykah Badu and MØ. The song has a laid-back vibe with subtle, funky guitar licks and rich synths accompanying a catchy chorus. The lyrics explore the delirious, floating feeling evoked when summer love is in the air.

Additional vocals by Lotus’ own Jesse Miller, Steve Yutzy-Burkey (Philadelphia), Mutlu Onaral (Philadelphia – Hall & Oates and Amos Lee), Rachel Eisenstat (Denver’s Raven Jane), & Andy Bianculli (Austin’s Star Parks, Feofollet).
