This 3 track release from A Path Untold, entitled the Lone Dweller EP, focuses on a lush, melodic, future garage-influenced sound that speaks its story through the lens of the current pandemic the world is facing.
Written and produced in the span of just 5 weeks, this release is an experiment of sorts in completing and releasing music faster, while it is most relevant to the moment. Each track is a window of emotional reflection as a result of witnessing the unprecedented changes in the society and world around us.
Since this music was written in the thick of social distancing, it is an expression of the spaces between personal and collective isolation, encompassing the hope that this shared condition will ultimately serve to unite rather than divide.
The release strikes a balance between danceability and cinematic, headphone intimacy, spanning multiple genres and styles while emphasizing melody, depth and emotive atmosphere.
One hundred percent of proceeds will go to the Ecuadorian Amazon to emergency funds for the Siekopai indigenous community. Ecuador has been among the hardest hit countries in Latin America, and our greatest fear-- that indigenous peoples in the Amazon would be infected by the virus without adequate means to protect themselves-- is now a tragic reality. The Siekopai nation in Ecuador is made up of just 744 people and 185 families living across six villages, and Siekopai leaders are deeply concerned about what will happen if the virus continues to spread.
With your support, we continue to be able to mobilize information, food and medical supplies to indigenous communities across the Amazon.
