A pioneer of the alternative rap scene Lotus first emerged in 2017 with his influential Body Bag EP (featuring GothBoiClique collective members and friends Cold Hart and Nedarb). Over the last few years, Lotus has released a number of EPs (including 2020’s All My Little Scars 3-EP series) and over a dozen singles. With 30M+ streams to date, rising sadboy Lil Lotus has become known for blending confessional lyrics, pop-punk melodies, and rap beats.
On ERRØR BØY, Lotus worked with a number of producers including John Feldmann (The Used, Panic! At the Disco, All Time Low, Blink-182), and Drew Fulk (Lil Peep, A Day To Remember, Lil Xan) to bring his pop-punk and alt-rock influences front-and-center. The album also features two tracks with pop-punk legend, Travis Barker on drums.
The album was born with scars of addiction, toxic relationships, and everything else under the sun. The album is the synthesis of his best efforts and worst instincts. 'ERRØR BØY is about how I’ve struggled with addiction, I've struggled with giving myself the credit I deserve, with loving myself, with loving the ones that love me, with not pushing people away, with not running away from people who are completely there for me,' Lotus says. That manifests in songs of romance and all its perils.
