I want you in me all the time
I fantasize you in my mind
I can’t deny you
Mexican-American musician, art director, and producer L, returns, bringing with her a distinct fusion of darkwave, industrial, and EBM to the underground musical landscape, underscored by a dichotomy of haunting melodic vocals and aggressive tonalities. Her spellbinding dualities conjure dark ethereal atmospheres, laying bare themes of loneliness, fantasy, and personal confessions within her lyrics and vocal arrangements.
L’s sizzling new release, “Bodyheat”, delivers a flavorful kick: the lyrics breathlessly detail the passionate ardour of ignited desire; the intense craving for the beloved…or at least the beloved that night. The story interlaced in the lyrics delves into the pulsing anticipation of a hot and heavy rendezvous, encapsulating the rush of excitement it ignites.
It’s a simple message: I want you…right now.
The video, meticulously crafted by 80s Baby and Clint Schwabedissen, delivers a timeless ‘booty call’ saga…yet this time, the caller is an emboldened woman, prepared to seize her desires unapologetically. In the video, L demonstrates an exuberant revelry of the sacred feminine, of the ascension of Kundalini, and of sensual liberation defying societal restraint under the candid scrutiny of the camera by joyously applauding a variety of forms, proportions, and sensual pleasures. The message is that our bodies, no matter what they present, are gifts of pleasure. The joys of the Bacchanal are always ours to unleash, no matter what society or social media dictate.
Each stage is represented by various avatars facilitating these encounters, as described by the creators:
- EBM Destroyers: The hammer-men destroying shit; fulfilling the concept of force and strength
- 80s Baby TV World: Filling the song with rhythm and extremely powerful body movement over the TV fuzz; overpowering the standards and parameters the world puts us in, he rules over them.
- Ms Freeze Ice Box: Cools and balances the heat throughout the song with steady yet powerful stares to the camera.
- L in the jail cell: represents the heat itself locked without any sort of release; the pressure that needs to come out. The rage and intense luring temptation.
(Caveat: this steamy video does veer into NSFW territory.)
The EP “BODYHEAT” is now available on Crunch Pod. It was created by L, a Mexican-American female producer, writer, and composer also known as Lynette Ríos Padilla. The EP features electrifying and intense compositions, with a captivating sound that fuses elements of EBM, techno, and darkwave to create haunting yet energetic atmospheres.
“BODYHEAT” showcases L’s innovative musicality, resulting in a finely crafted repertoire that is both stimulating and profound. The four-track collection of songs includes “LONESTAR”, the title track “BODYHEAT,” ‘TMA,” as well as a new rendition and interpretation of the song “THE WHORE’S LULLABY,” originally released on the album “As They Drown In Their Lies” in 2010 by Industrial Noise artist Manufactura.
