The Killing Lotus Ep is the stunning second release from The Living Gods of Haiti and the follow up to their debut EP Run Back To Never. It contains three tracks, “Killing Lotus”, “Bone Dry” and “Akem Manah” alongside a new remix of the title track by Charles Cave (White Lies).
The music is an organic explosion of dark glittering melodies and poetry amidst a trembling ocean of synth. Drummers drumming from cliff tops and sirens luring the sailors in. A delicate balance between the nature of light and shade.
It explores more Persian and Oriental sounds and textures that compliment the chanting poetic style and ethereal, vocals are accompanied by evocative lyrics. Taking their name from Maya Deren’s documentary film on ritual dance and voodoo ‘Divine Horsemen: The Living Gods of Haiti’, this outfit is fronted by singer, writer, poet and video maker Rebekah.
The EP was produced by Rebekah’s long time collaborator Marc Collin, best known for his work with Nouvelle Vague & Yasmine Hamdan.
