Octo Octa announces new EP, ‘For Lovers’, shares single: Listen

Maya Bouldry-Morrison debuts on Ninja Tune’s Technicolour imprint with her most “vulnerable work to date”...

Octo Octa will release her new EP, ‘For Lovers’, via Ninja Tune’s Technicolour imprint on 1st March.

The producer, live act and DJ – whose huge acid remix of FaltyDL we premiered last week – will follow up her and Eris Drew’s ‘Devotion’ EP and subsequent T4T LUV NRG tour with the release of her “most vulnerable work to date”.

The three-track EP opens with ‘I Need You’, which you can hear below. The track is a typically atmospheric house cut with a gorgeous synth lead and breakbeat. Described as a “bold declaration regarding her need for love during a delicate time of rapid change”, it finds Bouldry-Morrison using her voice on a track for the first time since her transition. The lyrics read as follows...

“This is for my friends, this is for my lovers, this is for the people I care about in my life, for my family, for those who support me, for those who need to be around me, and for those who I need to be around"

'For Lovers' is available to pre-order here.
