Lotus released a new single, “Tar Pits,” via AntiFragile. The track arrived along with an accompanying video.

“Tar Pits” follows Lotus’ April single “Pluck,” marking their first studio release with new guitarist Tim Palmieri, who joined bassist Jesse Miller, multi-instrumentalist Luke Miller, drummer Mike Greenfield and percussionist Chuck Morris last September following the departure of longtime guitarist Mike Rempel. The livetronica quintet now follows with their second single of 2022, “Tar Pits.”

“This track was a lot of fun to record,” Jesse Miller noted. “I love putting classic 80s synths and vintage units like the tape delay we used here into a more modern context. The richness of those sounds make them timeless to my ears.”

“As the song progresses, different melodies and chord patterns change the color palette,” Luke Miller added. “To me it feels like tromping through an ancient forest with giant animals and green foliage all around.”
