Ola Szmidt - EP3

Regular price

Ola Szmidt's third EP signifies both the culmination of her creative output over the years and the beginning of a new era as her first release with Matthew Herbert's Accidental Records. EP3 exudes a profound sense of courage and vulnerability, showcasing Ola's most intimate recording to date. The pulsating processed loops and emotionally raw lyricism create a palpable and transparent sonic experience. Throughout the EP, the theme of healing resonates, encompassing various dimensions from individual to collective, spanning the realms of cells and minds. While originally intended for a specific person, the track 'For Eric' draws us into a shared moment, enveloping us with elemental vocal layers that traverse souls. It offers a glimpse into Ola's personal landscape, inviting us into a nurturing conscious dream. Shifting focus to a macro level, 'Raguel' serves as Ola's prayer for soothing those affected by injustice, offering solace to anyone, anywhere. The B-side includes 'Rooted,' a composition born out of Ola's own healing journey during her recovery from surgery, and concludes with the glitchy yet sublime 'C Tactile Afferent.' Inspired by the sensory experiences of touch, skin hunger, and the significance of the 'C Tactile Afferent' nerve fibers that respond to gentle caresses, the track explores the effects of touch deprivation, particularly during the pandemic, where many individuals endure this condition. Ola sends her love and light to everyone experiencing skin hunger.
