Folktronica artist Lee Switzer-Woolf unveils a poignant one-off single, “Ototoxin,” commemorating the six-month milestone since the release of his second full-length album, “Annihilation Signals.” This track serves as a unique celebration and a testament to Switzer-Woolf’s ability to channel personal struggles into emotive musical expressions. “Ototoxin” emerges as a compelling ‘love letter to pain medication,’ a raw and honest exploration of Switzer-Woolf’s experience with back problems. Recorded during the same sessions as his album, the song became a favorite but was initially set aside due to thematic and sonic disparities. This release showcases the artist’s commitment to authenticity, choosing resonance over conformity.
True to his signature style, Switzer-Woolf, a Reading-based artist, took on the roles of performer and recording engineer, capturing the essence of “Ototoxin” entirely on his own. Long-time collaborator Aden Pearce handled the crucial stages of mixing and mastering, ensuring a seamless and immersive sonic experience. The single promises a digital release on November 7th across major streaming platforms, accompanied by a lyric video and a merchandise drop. As Switzer-Woolf continues to carve his path in the realm of folktronica, “Ototoxin” stands as a testament to his artistic evolution and unyielding commitment to authenticity.
