about

Singing about finding grace within grief by surrendering and giving listeners a taste of her French heritage, this bilingual mover-and-shaker offers a softer, more vulnerable side on the low-fi downtempo love letter “Body Gold”, the second single released off Lozen's album — 𝘎𝘰𝘢𝘭 𝘋𝘪𝘨𝘨𝘦𝘳 — out now on Soul Path Records. Acknowledging that she comes at her art with plenty of baggage in tow, Lozen parallels this to “grasping in life”. “For me, relationships act as a mirror. They reflect pieces of our past, whatever we’re holding on to…and you can only meet someone as far as they’ve met themselves. Together it’s this continuous unfolding of who you are as human beings, and at what point do you choose to let go?”

lyrics

Intro:

Go ahead and paint my body gold
I can feel the fire in my soul
Take my higher to another place
We could disappear without a trace

Verse 1:

Before you came ‘round
I was walking ‘round town, faded
Looking for direction
Want to tell my fam I made it
Truth is I was missing something special
Only you could fill
Place inside my heart I never knew existed
You could steal
Kisses from my lips, my tender hips
They move for you boo
Ride or die chick
On the level only few prove
Loud enough to quiet the thunder
Now I breathe out
I’m never going to slow down
Love with no doubt

Chorus (2 x repeat):

Go ahead and paint my body gold
I can feel the fire in my soul
Take my higher to another place
We could disappear without a trace

Bridge (FRENCH LYRICS – English Translation in Parentheses):

Avant que t'es arrive (Before you arrived)
Mon âme comme le soleil couchant (My soul like the setting sun)
Avant que t'es arrive (Before you arrived)
Je cherchais mon égal (I was searching for my equal)
Avant que t'es arrive (Before you arrived)
Mon coeur encore dormant (My heart still sleeping)
Avant que t'es arrive (Before you arrived)
La vie rapide fatale (A fast and fatal life)

Verse 2:

Just let it go
Your fingertips a fantasy
That Midas touch
Paint my body gold
I never knew that I could feel so much
Look into your eyes
I see that lightning in the bottle fire
Hotter than the sun passion
Fueling my desire higher
Take me to another place
Tempt you with my leather lace
Lipstick on your collar baller
Tease you ‘cause I love the chase
Truth is I’m a sucker for your tattoos and dimples
Working man hands working me strong and simple

Chorus (2 x repeat):

Go ahead and paint my body gold
I can feel the fire in my soul
Take my higher to another place
We could disappear without a trace

Outro:

Go ahead and paint my body gold
I can feel the fire in my soul
Take my higher to another place
We could disappear without a trace

about

Lozen Vancouver, British Columbia

Lozen isn’t much for boxes — which are commonplace in the music world — because “magic happens outside of your comfort zone” says the Quebecer (real name Meaghan Mullaly). The now BC-based singer-songwriter-bandleader goes way beyond classification with a mixed bag of genre-bending offerings from trippy R&B, and jazz-infused ballads, to golden-era style hip-hop and dirty electronic bass. ... more
