Octo Octa - For Lovers (12" + Download Card)
Octo Octa's (Maya Bouldry-Morrison) latest EP For Lovers, represents some of the artists most vulnerable work to date. The opening song I Need You is a declaration regarding her need for love during a delicate time of rapid change. The first vocal performance Maya has recorded in many years and the first since transition, features the voice of a woman who has been though an intense personal struggle, and through that come to a place of understanding that she is not alone. That the people in her life her friends, her family, and her polyamorous lovers are, and have been, essential to her process of self-acceptance and becoming.The second song, Bodies Melt Together is a sensuous house dub that reflects Mayas belief that physical connections with her partners is at its most elevated a profound spiritual catharsis. The gorgeous closing track, Loops For Healing was not originally intended for release, it was-as the title suggests -composed as a personal tool for healing.
