Sound systems and listeners beware, NotLö has returned with her latest single ‘Catnip!’ Out now on all platforms, the latest release experiments with a new direction we can’t wait to see more of. Listen now below!
Living in Denver by way of Greenville, South Carolina, NotLö aka Alex Mantekas is taking off as we come to a close in 2021. With a forthcoming EP coming soon, we see no signs of slowing down.
While NotLö’s creative process typically takes a more intense approach, ‘Catnip’ is built on a fun, playful foundation. Utilizing a bright synth as the inspiration, she quickly built around it with the dungeon-dwelling low-end sub she’s come to be known for.
Looking back on the year, it’s no surprise that ‘Catnip’ is a hit. NotLö’s recent achievements include festival performances at the famed Hulaween and releases on Wakaan, Odyzey Music, and Deep Dark and Dangerous!
“I feel like a lot of my music has a very “serious” theme. It was fun to experiment with the squeaky, fun synth lead in the song. I basically built something around it using my usual sound design and was so excited to play it right when i finished it. 🙂 My cat taco was also enduring his afternoon zoomies while i wrote it!” – NotLö
Now with 2021 coming to a close, we are certain next year’s calendar is beginning to fill. Where do you think NotLö should stop next?
