LUWTEN’s music encapsulates that much-needed stroll around the block to clear your mind. A tranquil space to properly arrange perceptions of difference and similarity. Through her songs, Tessa Douwstra emboldens the shy person who musters the courage to withdraw. The person who’d rather consider all interactions, choices and dreams at his or her own desired pace.
During the album’s writing and recording process, Tessa found a rewarding collaborator in percussionist and producer Frank Wienk (BINKBEATS). The album’s supple, meticulous compositions are the result of two full years of exploring sounds, feeling ones way in the dark and unfurling elemental, once-veiled emotions to their bare essence. Douwstra’s voice radiates like a human source of warmth amidst the music’s glacial, free-flowing machinery.
