Lotus is gearing up for the release of Citrus, a new EP, on April 6th and has shared the project’s second single, “Condor”. This latest track comes following last week’s project announcement and release of the lead single, “Phantom Tooth“.

Premiered on Tuesday by JamBase, “Condor” is a guitar-driven instrumental that lets Mike Rempel run wild. Whereas much of Lotus’ music is a groove-oriented group effort, this latest single allows the guitarist to go out in front. While the spirit of the song is still very much a communal vehicle, “Condor” is a track that will allow for extensive guitar improvisation in a live setting.

“Like the broad-winged bird this song soars in majestic fashion. Grand piano arpeggios create currents of air for the guitar to fly on,” Luke Miller said of the track. “The drums and bass create a big pocket and a mellotron choir pillows around it. Playing delicately in the middle during an improvisatory stretch the piano reflects beams of sunlight until the guitar catches another updraft to take the song back to the final flight.”

Listen to “Condor” by Lotus via the player below or on Bandcamp where Citrus is also available for pre-order. Lotus will premiere a new single every Tuesday leading up to Citrus‘ release on April 6th.
