Fort Bragg native Emily Jane White’s long awaited album, They Moved in Shadow All Together, is finally getting an official release this Friday, July 8. We’ve already previewed the album’s first single, “Frozen Garden,” and now White unveils the music video for the album’s second single, “Pallid Eyes.”
Featuring a hypnotic acoustic riff and White’s ethereal voice, the song builds on “Frozen Garden” with a mysterious narrative and haunting melodies. And the video, shot in washed-out greys by director and editor Dan Jenkins, moodily captures the song’s message of longing and languishing.
White is currently on tour supporting the forthcoming album, click here for updates on her upcoming shows.
Singer and songwriter Emily Jane White’s mysterious new album, They Moved in Shadow All Together, is already out in Europe, but fans here in the states have had to wait patiently to hear the latest from the darkly experimental Oakland-based artist and Fort Bragg native.
Until now, as White this week unveiled the lead single from the new record, “Frozen Garden.” The song is a lush and melodic journey through dense layers of instrumental textures, with White’s voice acting as a guiding light breathlessly leading the listener ever deeper into the tangled brush.
They Moved in Shadow All Together will be released in the US on June 10 through Talitres Records. Get your copy by clicking here.
Brand new North Bay electronic rock ensemble Night Shade made their offical aural debut this morning when they released their first-ever single, the haunting and hypnotic “Mother,” on their bandcamp page.
Made up of long time music makers Darwin Meiners, Emily Jane White and Derek Owen Doss, Night Shade’s dark, glassy synths and densely layered vocals here perfectly float over a swirling beat and single strained guitar chord.
Lyrically, “Mother” is longing and emotionally penetrating, as maternal figures are taken over by the mythos of patriarchy. Musically, the song builds in scope and urgency throughout with an ending that leaves you wanting more.
Hopefully, more is on the way soon from Night Shade. Stay tuned.
