Petal announces Magic Gone for 6/15 release

by Woody on April 16, 2018

Petal is the cathartic vehicle of Kiley Lotz. Magic Gone is going to Petal’s sophomore effort after 2015’s Shame. If you enjoy music inspired by 90s indie, than Petal should be right up your alley. Here’s some more on the album from Lotz.

“‘Magic Gone’ is the physical and sonic representation of me fighting for my right not only to survive but live all while coming to terms with encroaching adulthood,” says Lotz. “I was a closeted queer person struggling with chronic mental health disorders; terrified that if I tried to deal with these two major issues in my life I would lose everyone and everything I loved. Coming out was the beginning of a long and continuing process of self-actualization, of taking a hard look at myself and the problems I had and how I could fix them. This record is the result of being the most honest I have ever been in my life, and the constant battle of overcoming the thought that, “maybe if I were just someone else completely, everything would be better.” ‘Magic Gone’ is about letting go of the anger induced by all the paranoia, anxiety, guilt and pain, and embracing the magic of your own endurance and hoping for the best.”
