Luwten’s recent Door EP marks a step towards a new creative chapter. The Dutch producer, songwriter and musician Tessa Douwstra considers these songs a study of a perfectionist who acknowledges that everything’s in constant flux. By splicing artificial sounds with organic instrumentation, samples and field recordings, Door explores one of life’s bigger emotional beats: how to reconcile a yearning for both solitude and companionship, a quandary the world of today is suddenly coping with massively. Within that tricky balance, Douwstra finds solace in small, bemused observations she can hang on to like cherished mementos.
