The much anticipated “Petricolour” EP from Motsa was released alongside a film to the opening track of the EP “Petrichor”, which features Sophie Lindinger – one of the pair of Austrian pop outfit Leyya. The track “Petrichor” itself is a song encompassing the fresh beginnings the EP stands for with its exciting, vibrant, and quick-witted rhythms meshed with the sound of water.
“Petricolour” is filled with socially conscious songs that address the decline in the western society. It talks about its wealth, freedom, opportunities, beauty, and the path of gradual decay. The artwork on the EP captures this thought, with the coexistence of beauty and death on the flowers depicting hope despite the disintegration around it. A regular feature of the EP is the use of organic textures and natural sounds recorded from his surroundings.
After its release, the first single “Colours” garnered over 150,000 streams in the first week alone and entered the German iTunes Electronic Charts, and continues to do well across Austrian airways. His talent hasn’t gone unnoticed by the industry’s tastemakers, earning great reviews from the likes of Eton Messy, Annie Mac, Dummy Mag and XLR8R.
