EZRA FURMAN – ” Poor Girl A Long Way From Heaven “

Posted: August 9, 2022 in MUSIC

The spiritual life ain’t all pious platitudes. This song is about how weird it gets, when you’re in love with the Source of Being and She’s not texting you back.

Ever since it hit me that I was never going to be loved and accepted on the scale of my pop star heroes, me and my bandmates have started to work on a different vision of pop, one more our own, one that gestures at the stranger truths of the human mind. Here we are in thrall to verbally adventurous nineties music like Bjork and Beck and the Silver Jews and them kinda non-linear geniuses.

As for the video by the amazing Haoyan of America, I basically told Haoyan a story I made up about a trans Joan of Arc narrowly avoiding her public execution, and then gave him free reign to do whatever he wanted with it, as long as Daphne Always (also seen in our recent “Forever in Sunset” video) played Joan. I adore the cracked brilliance of what came out.

Our new album ‘All Of Us Flames’ is out in Two weeks! Still time to pre-order the record and exclusive merch items from our store. Be warned, signed vinyl stock is running LOW!

available August 26th.
