Since the release of his critically acclaimed album 'Everything', the Los Angeles-based Norwegian producer Peder Losnegård, a.k.a. Lido, continues to craft cinematic future bass style music that's in a league of its own. This week, the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has released his latest project – a powerful introspective work titled 'I O U 2'. Today, EARMILK has the pleasure of debuting the visuals for the dynamic and explosive track titled "Vultures". Check it out below:
Taken from his latest 'I O U 2' series, "Vultures" is incredibly explosive, yet at times wildly introspective. Being able to capture that dichotomy of emotion and translate it into a textured 3-minute track is where Lido thrives the most. Shot deep in the pureness of nature, the music video really helps portray the rawness in the record. A gentle dance between monstrous, fiery emotions and how their release can be incredibly cathartic.
Lido shares of the recent project, "The first part (I O U) represents my interactions and experiences following the conclusion of ‘Everything’. It’s songs about family and friends. The second part (I O U 2) is about me finding my voice again. Both metaphorically and literally including my unprocessed vocals in my songs for the first time in a very long time." And that's what makes his music resonate with so many listeners. Hard-hitting drops that deliver a monstrous sound yet an elegant R&B style vocals that cradle your soul. He continues "It’s (I O U 2) made up of reflections on the ‘Everything’ experience, finding myself and facing the last bit of darkness left after the dust had settled and I had regained my perspective and the rest of the album contains some very intimate tracks, each track injected with a heavy dose of rawness."
Entirely self-taught, Lido has already gained accolades for producing chart-topping hits alongside artists like Chance The Rapper, Jaden Smith, Banks, Alt-J, Bastille, Halsey, and Disclosure to name a few, Lido is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after young producers in the game. He also co-produced Towkio’s debut album WWW alongside industry heavy-weight Rick Rubin. 2018 has already seen Lido produce tracks for Chicago rapper Towkio including his breakout single “Symphony,” which the two performed last February on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
