Poté releases ‘Over The Water’ EP
Having already released music across labels like Enchufada and Black Butter Records and recording a Spotlight Mix for Data Transmission in March this year, London-bred, St. Lucia born artist Poté has announced eagerly awaited new EP, Over The Water, out now via The Full Hundred.
Filled with percussion-laced sound, Over The Water marks a shift in focus that relates to numerous aspects of his life and is evidence of his Caribbean-fused sound: “It’s going through a period where I felt I was drowning, hence the title Over the Water: I feel like I can breathe now, even though I’m only just over the water.” Over The Water also delves into Poté’s songwriting capabilities.
Kicking off the EP is Fall, featuring vocalist Emma Foster from London trio Arctic Lake, which depicts the idea of being cursed before birth. “The idea that if for you’re born gay, black, disabled, poor, trans or even rich for example in some places, there’s sometimes a painful, uncomfortable or even ugly pathway set for you to go through, throughout your life” explains Poté.
