Koloto is the moniker of Canterbury based producer Maria Sullivan who has treating us to first-rate glitchy, homemade and hand-crafted electronic sounds since 2013.
There has been a flurry of Koloto related activity of late, with Sullivan sharing singles ‘Alatheia’, ‘Hana’ and most recently, ‘Lyra’. It is the latter with which we turn attention to today, and it is a typically intricate and delicately woven, beat-driven nugget of gorgeous, glitchy, electronic music. Profoundly wonderful and imaginative, it opens with a sense of awe and wonder as sounds drip, splash and twinkle amid the chiming tones, glitchy sounds and flourishes exuberant light. ‘Lyra’ is simply divine, leaving us in awe at its Majesty and expansive beauty. For me personally, it brings back fond memories of N64’s The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time; an equally magical experience.
Listen to ‘Lyra’ below – and if that is to your liking, there is more where that came from here.
