about

Everyone goes through hard times. It's part of the human experience. One can either dwell on all of the negative emotions and sink deeper, or find an outlet and a way to process these feelings. For otem rellik it has always been the latter. Blood Bone Piano continues this trend and contains some of the most intimate and fragile moments from the Denver, CO based producer/vocalist.

Otem's digital dream style production is built with homemade/circuit bent instruments, thrift store keyboards, guitar, and of course, plenty of piano. These lush soundscapes, rusted and resampled, seem to be a perfect backdrop for the painfully honest and transparent lyrical content that otem delivers.

Whether singing in a delicate falsetto or rapping urgently into the microphone, rellik paints a beautiful picture of pain and transcendence in nearly every song. The title track perfectly encapsulates the theme of the album, starting out with the line “will these memories remain tombstones or will you blanket them with the blood of poems”, and ending with “ I've learned how this fall might benefit me”.
