Everything you see, trouble follows me in all the ways deceivin’.
Now it’s time to go.
First I’ll feed you in me then you can see the silence that’s breathin’ in me.
Seattle’s MØAA, the dream pop/post-punk/psychedelic darkwave project of Jancy Rae, whisks us through a dark labyrinth of the soul with “Jaw,” a new stand-alone single and a strong follow up to this year’s Euphoric Recall (We Were Never Being Boring). Throughout the course of the powerful four-and-a-half-minute single, the stern and sweet vocals of Rae and backing vocalist Andrea Volpato (New Candys) center the track’s throbbing bass grooves, driving guitar hooks, and oscillating synth lines.
“‘Jaw’ is about being the black sheep, or the bad seed in a group of friends,” says Rae. “Usually those who are living a sketchy life aren’t easily able to escape it and instead suck others into their tornado and corrupt the people around them. From the outside, people wonder why the reckless and troubled behave this way but rarely do they actually want to know where they are coming from or what their story really is.”
Ominous and reflective, “Jaw” ponders the duality of corruption and the deeper motivations that hide beneath the surface. The hypnotic video was directed and edited by Alice Lorenzon with camerawork by Laura Sans.
