Octo Octa (a.k.a Maya Bouldry-Morrison) will release her third studio album, Resonant Body, this September.
Resonant Body is the US artist's "most spiritual and nature-connected" work. Bouldry-Morrison recorded the songs at her cabin in New Hampshire in order to channel the resonance of the forest, the beauty of the river, and the energy from the rituals she conducts within it. It was written and produced at the end of December 2018, after a year of near-constant touring, in order to process through art an intense and magical year of change.
The album is the second release on T4T LUV NRG, the new label co-run by Bouldry-Morrison and Eris Drew, following Drew's June mixtape, Raving Disco Breaks Vol. 1. It draws on the same themes of togetherness (“Power To The People”), embodiment (“Spin Girl, Let’s Activate!”), love (“Deep Connections”), healing (“My Body Is Power”), and survival (“Can You See Me?”) that animated her For Lover’s EP via Technicolour, released earlier this year.
The artwork was created by Maya’s partner, Brooke, who painted two canvases after a magical day-trip Brooke, Eris, and Maya took earlier this year on the “Sweet Trail” in New Hampshire. 50 percent of the profits from the album will go to the Sylvia Rivera Law Project.
