This week we have a crush on Dutch artist LUWTEN, with her latest EP release titled “Generations”!
Speaking on the process of creating her latest EP LUWTEN said, “During the making of Draft there was another story that surfaced. These songs belonged on a separate release: Generations. I feel a lot of comfort in zooming out and looking at the intergenerational processes underlying our times. To put things into context. These songs are inspired by generations, the past and the present.
LUWTEN comes from a religious background that presented her with ideals that she felt caged her. This went against her nature and it was only when she let go of those ideals that she was able to flourish. With this EP, she’s taken inspiration from that time in her life to give us songs that challenge those beliefs.
Discussing the track “Restless Before Bed”, “I wrote this song in my car while driving. I think this sums up what this song is about quite much. I feel that most of us, and my generation for sure, are quite distracted by effectiveness. We wake up feeling restless because we woke up too late. Every hour counts but for what exactly?”
A similar theme is observed in her track “Nothing New''; a song about breaking patterns. Both songs feature sounds from different religions to illustrate the loss of a collective belief.
“Generations” is another amazing exposition of LUWTEN’s introspective, deep thinking and unique vision. She continues to show us that she is an artist in every sense of the word!
