Lioness is the first offering from Primed For Loss, the sophomore EP from Bristol-based producer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist t l k.
Written and recorded between Bristol and on Residency at Snape Maltings, Primed For Loss forms t l k’s second body of work, exploring the nuance of maternal loss in early childhood. A bold departure from debut EP Strength In Tenderness, the project is instrumentally rooted in a more contemporary classical sound, blending t l k’s early influences with the ethereal, ambient electronic palette they’ve become distinctly known for.
These worlds coalesce into something vulnerable and powerful, capturing the disorientation of intangible memory, recognising the omnipresent, ever-evolving nature of grief, and honouring the lessons of legacy.
…So faintly tangible in memory
Beyond the anecdotal history
Her cells reside inside this body…
To mark the release of Primed For Loss, t l k will be embarking on their debut UK tour in May – June, hitting Bristol’s Saint Ambrose Church on 7th June.
