East meets West on an introspective musical union between Denver-based trumpeter Joshua Trinidad (Sage Francis, Lee Konitz, Nathaniel Ratliffe) and Mumbai-based ambient artist Riatsu.
Together, they produced the Lithium EP due out July 2 via Subcontinental Records.
“The world we see now is stuck in a loop of manic impulses. A state of Paranoia. This album was created with an intent to shed some light in the dark. To give some solace.”
We’re pleased to world premiere the pensive video for the EP’s second cut, “He Was Right There,” directed by Sharath U Holla.
As the duo’s beatless track unwinds, a dark liquid is introduced into a body of clear water. From there we see a depiction of what happens when lithium, a mood stabilizer used to treat manic depression, is in the body.
