'Erotic Probiotic' is Nourished By Time’s debut EP on Scenic Route, following hot on the heels of his featured track, ‘Wild Thang, Sweet Thang’, on the critically acclaimed Scenic Route 16-track digital compilation, 'The Road Less Travelled Vol.1', supported by BBC 1Xtra, Dazed, CRACK, BBC 6 Music, Lot Radio, NTS, The Wire and Resident Advisor. The 'Erotic Probiotic' is an intimate glimpse into the world of Baltimore native, whose two track EP shows the duplicity of this exciting singer/songwriter/producer.
Side A, ‘Give It Away’, a beautiful multi layered serenade, showcasing the breadth of his vocal range, with delicate textures sprinkled throughout; heart aching guitar riffs and celestial chords enveloping you into this contagious dream pop melody. Give It Away is a lush R&B ballad about choosing yourself over love but choosing love over pride. The Live performance video was shot at his sold out Servant Jazz Quarters show, in April, directed by Jono Canning.
'Staring Into The Fireplace', a relatable anarchist anthem for anyone working a dead-end job, filled with angst and a foreboding energy driven by eerie drums and a melancholy tone. Written whilst employed by Whole Foods during COVID , spraying down shopping carts, what he describes as “the most soul destroying job”. The song explores America’s social constructs moulded by race and capitalism, through his gravelly baritone vocals over lo-fi punk sound, with lyrics reinforcing his ‘bun down Babylon’ sentiment. Along with a self directed music video.
The 'Erotic Probiotic' is the first EP with Scenic Route as he looks to cultivate his unique off beat, guitar driven pop sound in the lead up to his album.
STAFF COMMENTSMatt says: One of the hottest stars of 2023's first vinyl release. Strangely, the album that would cause his blow-up was also named "Erotic Probiotic", but this 7" release contains two tracks not featured on the album. Very few people got this first time round, so this is a cheeky chance to bag this sure-to-be-superstar's first proper release.
