A self-described “soundtrack to the apocalypse” has been released by Koloto in the form of her IOA EP via Interstellar Music Ltd. The producer’s debut album Mechanica was released with remixes from the likes of CloZee and Sun Glitters. Since the release of the album, the songstress has received over 6 million plays across streaming platforms with features of Ines, DLoaw, and Perles de Musique contributing towards that count. We’re expecting that play count to keep growing significantly with her new EP.
Speaking of IOA, Koloto tells us, “When writing music I tend to get stuck in a cycle of creating multiple Incarnations of an Idea. I often reach a point where I can’t decide which to use, and as a result, nothing gets used. IOA is a rebellion against this particular artistic struggle. It’s a series of ideas created from the same basic chord progression, It could be viewed as 3 movements or as standalone tracks. On a personal level it’s really liberating to release something that’s “unfinished” and serves as a reminder to myself not to confuse musical norms with constraints.”
While a “soundtrack to the apocalypse” may sound ominous, the opposite is the case here as IOA radiates with cheer. Carrying a wealth of subtle chord progressions, the EP rebels against industry standards while presenting itself in a raw and true form.
