Two years after the Cologne-based musician LOTA released her EP "bold", she presents six new pieces six new tracks on her "mind" EP, which will be released in autumn, and proves her remarkable songwriting songwriting talent! With a sound somewhere between the wonderful "Through Water" by Låpsley, James Blake's emotional songwriting and the danceability of Sylvan Esso, the "mind" EP sounds like all these references and yet something quite unique. references and yet sounds like something quite unique. Organic sounds and the organic sounds and a feeling for small motifs that create big feelings form the basis of her tracks again and again. There is an impressively strong vulnerability and yet empowering self-determination in the music. Lotta Holtei, who lives in Cologne, already sang in the children's choir at the age of four, followed by her first piano lesson two years later. After trying her hand at the flute, clarinet and guitar, she has remained true to the piano and has played and worked with Jules Ahoy, among others. LOTA was also nominated for the Pop NRW Prize in 2021 and was part of the c/o Pop Festival, as well as the Cologne Music Week in 2021.
Her first tour took place in autumn 2021 in which she and her band played ten cities all over Germany. In 2023, she was again on a double tour with Marlena Käthe and played in two tour blocks, once in spring and once in autumn, in cities all over Germany.
In addition, Marlena Käthe and LOTA organise Flinta* MeetUps together before some concerts, which is intended to serve as a networking tool for Flinta* musicians in the music industry.
