“My Body Your Mind” releases to digital stores worldwide on December 9. Listen to “My Body Your Mind” here.
The opening track “Mariana (I’ll Find You)” features loops of field recordings of rooms in an abandoned home and sounds of a dilapidated front door that were processed in unique ways to create a post-apocalyptic Giorgio Moroder symphonic. The song, like all of the EP, touches on existential issues of an immigrant man’s journey. “Mariana” asserts that perseverance, faith and love in times of chaos, transition and loss lead to redemption and salvation.
Poetry to a wall of textured sound fashions the EP from start to finish. Track two, “My Body Your Mind” incorporates an ancient Middle Eastern instrument called the oud to amplify the immigrant son’s blues. At once specific and ambiguous, explicit and implicit, the themes of survival, loss, memory and desire resonate in the aching middle eastern melodies that capture the universal and timeless wish to be loved despite the damage done.
“Fashion Trance and “Days Turn to Nights” take the listener through more layers of sound and metaphor integrating psych rock, new wave and world influences. Fountains of Wayne guitarist Jody Porter contributes to the closing track “Crystals.”
herMajesty has been putting out music consistently since forming in NYC several years ago. They’ve shared the stage with acts like B-52s, Tom Tom Club, Boxer Rebellion, Say Hi To Your Mom, and received airplay on tastemaker stations like KEXP-FM in Seattle and WFUV-FM in NYC.
herMajesty consists of JP (vocals, rhythm guitars, programming), David Leatherwood (guitars, backup vocals), Joan Chew (bass), Dov Manski (keyboards) and Konrad Meissner (drums, percussion). Keyboards on “Crystals” were handled by Dayle Raymond Jellyman.
