TUNE Lottie Brazier - Washing Machine
'Washing Machine' has been featured on Dazed's 'The Only Tracks You Need To Hear This November', The Guardian Music, The Quietus' 'Music Of The Month', Dublin Digital Radio's Death Culture Blues show and Balloon Machine.
'Washing Machine' was co-produced, mixed and mastered by artist and producer William Doyle (who has worked with Brian Eno, Laura Misch) in his studio in Hoxton. The song lyrics are mostly impressionistic, but 'Washing Machine' was loosely inspired by a friend undergoing treatment for a life threatening illness, as well as fears about the future of healthcare in the UK. Its sound has been compared to classic 4AD bands like Cocteau Twins, Nico and industrial trailblazers like Robert Rental.
The song's bare bones were written on guitar around the cusp of finishing a philosophy degree at Sussex, while Lottie lived in Brighton. After having been inspired by her friend and fellow musician Mary Epworth to learn music production, Lottie Brazier then fleshed out the song's mix on Logic with synthesisers. William Doyle helped her to finish the production and mix.
