Video Release & Live at Moriska Paviljongen Malmö Dec 1
"When my mother told me that she and my father, who has Alzheimers try to dance everyday to keep him going, I found it to be such a beautiful image. I wrote the song Riding High and also filmed a music video with the two of them dancing on their porch, but also at the old dance palace where they used to go when they were young."
On Friday Dec 1st we celebrate the new song and video at Moriskans Bistro at 6 PM. No entrance fee and all are welcome! We will watch the video and hear Lotta and her band play live.

New single/video "Riding High" out Dec 1
Lottas talks about the new song: "When my mother told me that she and my father, who has Alzheimers, are dancing one dance a day to keep him up and running, I was so moved. So I wrote a song about it, Riding High!
Then I invited my friend and movie maker Niklas Hansson to shoot the video with the two of them dancing in their living room as well as at the old dance hall where they used to go when they where young."

The EP Stardust & Debris will be out Aug 4!
On the new existential country pop EP there are two songs that were written several years ago. "Health" is about shared care and here she sings with her old bandmate Andreas Ejnarsson (formerly Ben, now Avantgardet). In the tasteful "Time just slipped away", Lotta sings about the transience and leaving life when the children are still there. Here she kept the demo version's vocals and guitar and built the arrangement around them. On the last song "Trust Issues" she does a cover of her own song "Tillitsproblematik" which was included on her Swedish-language EP "Alla andra ska dö" from 2020. Overall, it is a collection of strong compositions carefully produced and full of warmth and love.
New single "Everybody Knows" out July 16!
The second single from the upcoming EP Stardust & Debris is released July 16. The lyrics reflects upon mental health issues among teens, especially young girls. Issues like social fobia, anxiety and gender dysphoria has according to studies increased during these last few years and the big question is why and how can we as adults help?

COUNTRY REVISITED – New single " Blackest Hole On Earth" out June 10!
Lotta releases a new singel on the 10th of June at her now label Margit Music. This time, Wenglén has invited Anders Thorén from Malmö-based Wildie to sing with her. He undoubtedly has one of Sweden's most beautiful sounding voices. The single "Blackest Hole on Earth" contains a sad, but hopeful lyric that is based on a recurring inner image that Lotta got after a friend's passing. A black hearse with flames on the sides passing by. She interpreted it as a symbol of the power, warmth and burning commitment that her friend had when she was still alive.
"Search no more for the blackest hole, look for the cracks of light in your soul. You might be the nearest rock for someone to lean on ”.
