Ezra Furman has shared a new video for ‘Poor Girl A Long Way From Heaven’.
It’s the latest taster of her upcoming album ‘All Of Us Flames’, set to arrive on 26th August via Bella Union.
“The spiritual life ain’t all pious platitudes,” she says. “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.”
