Holy Mountain Wata

High-flying futurism grounded in elastic electro-soul, third EP Holy Mountain Wata finds multi-instrumentalist Jessica Bathea building her most distinct celestial aesthetic. "Remember" sets the singer's values of individualism and aligned chakras, delivered in lush neo-soul and spoken verse. Bassline and synth hold down hypnotic psychedelic texture ("Oh My Goodness") amid warped sampling ("Slowly"). The six-minute title track fulfills the Frisco native's lyrical intentions: "I am going to successfully go inside this realm."
