One of the major reasons why I got into writing about music in the first place is my love of artists who not only take the time to transport you to another place with their sounds, but every other element of the sensory experience (OK maybe not smell). Going to a show knowing you’ll not only be treated to a full on aural fantasy, but a visual one as well is the mark of a true innovator.
Lozk is just one of those projects, from the mind of Colombian artist Leonardo Suárez Jiménez. His sweeping, synapse igniting, eclectic approach to electronic music mixed with next level visuals has already earned him attention and acclaim with his first LP taking home the John Leckie Award for Innovation in Music Production in 2012.
His style is the substance as the lyrics are really just mood establishing syllables not intended for direct interpretation as the music undulates and layers on top of itself. Lozk’s latest single, “Han Sow,” is a prime example of the forward thinking present in all of the artist’s recordings.
Give Han Sow a stream below and look for the new ten track effort, Meaningless Words, out October 10th.
