DON’T GET IN THE WAY OF THE SONG
Usually based in the UK, lottie has spent the past few years travelling and is currently based in Singapore where she met Hangi Tavakoli and began her journey as an artist.
Title track ‘Dance With You’ brings a new emotional rawness to lottie’s catalogue. A simple, piano focussed track, it’s a romantic song that explores themes of love and devotion. “I wrote Dance With You after a bunch of friends cancelled on a party my partner and I were throwing. I realised in that moment that I really didn’t care - all that mattered to me was spending time with the person I love,’ lottie explained. Sapphic love and simple, raw emotion are at the heart of this track.
How Does It Feel? was inspired by Sappho’s Fragment 31, drawing on the theme of forbidden love and jealousy. The song has a melancholic feel, with lingering verses that build to a powerful chorus.The lyrics centre on the overwhelming emotions that come with unrequited love - doubt, denial, hope and hopelessness.
Nervous is the upbeat, playful track of the EP. It focuses on themes of love and lust, exploring the late night interaction of two people as they meet for the first time. The song emits a nighttime feel, mysterious and elusive, drawing on the complicated emotions of love at first sight.
Finally, Chloe brings a bubblegum pop conclusion to ‘Dance With You’. One of the first songs lottie ever wrote, and her debut single, it provides a simple, catchy beat, lyrically exploring the idea of looking back on a problematic relationship after it has ended. Chloe saw success in the Q32 LGBT chart, debuting at number 5 and remaining there for multiple weeks.
lottie, together with Hangi Tavakoli, is currently working on her debut album which will be released later this year.
