Aussie indie rock superstars The Jezabels have released a special single, The Others, “unconnected to any other project.” Listen below:
It’s their first release since 2016’s critically acclaimed album, Synthia. It was recorded by long time collaborator Lachlan Mitchell, and mixed by Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen, The Cure, Crowded House).
“We’re revisiting our romantic roots in this new song, though with a newfound directness. Lyrically it’s a reflection of the kind of intense loneliness that makes simply being in ones own body feel painful. The unsolvable predicament of ones desire for another crossing over into a desire to lose yourself, where the body is both the blissful point of contact, but also, the thing which keeps you constantly separate. Musically we have tried to sit that on a soundscape that is both euphoric and melancholy, driving but pensive,” says the band in a statement.
The track comes ahead of their sold-out run of seven shows over seven nights at Sydney’s Landsdowne Hotel. For more, visit the Jezabels’ website.
