Under the radar, emerging British band, lotusbliss, are comprised of three brothers, Seth, Josh, and Adam. The group’s indie-electronic sound will transport you to a dream-like place you’ve never been before.
The siblings grew up playing music together, and then in 2018, while discussing their favorite band names, the trio decided to form their own band. They took a year to write and helm their sound, releasing their debut single, “Beautiful Monotone,” in November 2019. This production found them working with frequent collaborator, producer Josh Rumble (who is also a musician and songwriter for London indie-pop band, Anteros), and earned them critical praise, aiding in their growing fanbase. Lotusbliss’ music has been called “cinematic,” “beautiful,” and “emotional.”
Their latest EP, A Good Death Is A Beautiful Thing, find the Kent, UK siblings impressively demonstrating their pop-rock arrangement, produced by Rumble, and their latest track “Carpet,” delivers everything that makes the group a new band to watch out for. As stated in a press release, the track features “a treated, coolly-reverbed guitar lick, artfully muffled but propulsive drums, synthesizers decorating the spaces between the beats, and the radiant harmonies that have become a lotusbliss signature.” While the current pandemic has halted production for live events and concerts, the trio have been trailing their own blaze, performing quarantine-at-home festivals and gigs, including Heebie Jeebie’s Lockdown Festival, and Live at Home sessions, benefitting some great charities near and dear to the guys’ hearts. Check out their upcoming performances here.
The music video accompanying “Carpet” was produced and directed by lotusbliss’ Josh Gauton, and incorporates imagery and visuals that make for a feeling of danger and a view of mysteriousness. The video features a kidnapping, slow-moving shots, and the trio’s British countryside with a bit of gloom, with a bit of stylized violence, drawing the viewer in, making it hard to leave. The same can be said of lotusbliss’ music.
