Lotus, innovators in blending electronic dance music with the jamband model of  improvisation, have captivated audiences with their high-energy, dance-inducing shows  and intrepid studio work. Drawing from genres such as psychedelic rock, krautrock,  post-rock, disco, and funk, the four-piece band is known for their festival-favorite  performances and intriguing songwriting, which seamlessly transitions from high-flying  guitar solos to modular synth workouts, combining tightly composed songs with free ranging group improvisation. 

Their 11th studio album, "How To Dream In Color," showcases Lotus's evolution,  featuring 12 tracks that traverse a spectrum of soundscapes. While primarily  instrumental, this album includes vocals—both traditional and electronically  manipulated—integrating elements that create distinct atmospheres for each  composition. Highlights include tracks like “How Do I Come Down,” a riveting opener  with Radiohead-esque vocals from Gabe Otto, the groovy and unique “Watching the  Distant Storm,” and the driving krautrock instrumental “In the Shadow of the  Mountain.” The album originated from demos on an old 8-track reel-to-reel tape  machine, balancing gritty analog sounds with hi-fi studio production. The album reflects  a dreamlike narrative where incongruities blend into a cohesive whole, incorporating  guest vocals, horns, violin, handpan, modular synths, and modern electronic  techniques.

Building on their extensive touring experience and diverse production styles, Lotus  continues to innovate and inspire. Over the last two decades, the band has toured  actively throughout the US working their way up from clubs to world-class venues such  as Red Rocks (15 times). They've become festival favorites, playing everything from  Bonnaroo to Outside Lands and Electric Forest. This year, the band celebrates the  sixteenth anniversary of their annual festival, Summerdance, in Garrettsville, OH. 

Much like a live Lotus show, "How To Dream In Color" is a journey, offering a beacon for  fans old and new, inviting them to explore the vibrant and infinite realms of Lotus'  musical vision.
