RELEASING NEW EP “MY BODY, YOUR MIND” SPRING 2015

 

For Immediate Release – New York, NY – January 12, 2015 –  “Days Turn to Nights,” follows the bands’ summer release “Crystals, ” featuring Jody Porter’s hypnotic guitar work.  Both songs deal with love, loss, life, hopelessness, decay- rebirth, and ultimately hope through the use of metaphor.  Poetry to a wall of sound.  “Days Turn to Nights” builds on the story herMajesty is telling and the user experience as well through an interactive photo series that lead singer JP bravely initiates with his audience at their NYC show on February 4. 
herMajesty’s lead singer/songwriter will explore his own body as a verbal or non-verbal memory receptor through an intimate photo series crafted by Alice O’Malley.  The results of this interactive photo series will also inform a video for “Days Turn to Nights.”
Since coming together in NYC several years ago, herMajesty has released a succession of memorable thought-provoking and lush recordings. They’ve shared the stage with acts like The B-52s, Tom Tom Club, Boxer Rebellion and 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, backup vocals), and Konrad Meissner (drums, percussion). Keyboards on “Crystals” and “Days Turn to Nights” were handled by Dayle Raymond Jellyman.

DAYS TURN TO NIGHTS

 

Days turn to Nights

Nights drown out the promises

 

The thief who stole my poetry

Walked out with my feelings in her hand

Now there’s a barren land, barren land

Where we used to live,

No water, water for my lips

 

There’s a window that used to call out that name

Covered by black out shades

And it doesn’t call,

doesn’t call out that name

It drowns out the singing bird

 

Days turn to Nights

Nights drown out the promises

 

There’s a trigger in every corner of this haunted house

There’s an echo of those words that twists and churns

And they freeze my blood

and squeeze my throat

And feed the howling beat.

HerMajesty’s NY-based dream pop revels in spacey, glam Briticisms and a blissful expansiveness that can only be described as, well, majestic. – CMJ New Music Report

 

Their most recent single “Crystals,” which was released a few weeks ago, has some contributions from Fountains of Wayne’s Jody Porter, who adds a  bit of psychedelic feel to the song. Interestingly, the song bears a sonic resemblance to Interpol — I think particularly of “Always Malaise (The Man I Am)” and of “The Undoing” on their self-titled return to the Matador Records. And interestingly, the track captures the inner thoughts and observations of it’s narrator in a way that shows a novelistic attention to the  small details that make up a life. – Will Helms, The Joy of Violent Movement

 

The keyboards seem to swirl around you in hypnotic fashion, begging you to try and leave so they can exert their will on your being. It is a track with an orchestral feel, thankfully incorporating some girl on guy vocals to help the listener find their way back out. The track guest features the guitar work of Jody Porter from Fountains of Wayne. – Tender Branson, Write, Cook, Listen
