Death Hags: Earthbound

Born in the French Alps, a current resident of East Los Angeles, composer/multi-instrumentalist, Lola Jean, pulls influence from pioneering artists like Brian Eno and Björk to come up with her own unique version of minimalist electronica which she releases under the delectable moniker, Death Hags.

Her new single and debut music video, Earthbound, is an elegant homage to the 1976 sci-fi cult classic, The Man Who Fell to Earth. The clip is directed by Brian J. Davis and produced by Emily Schultz, while the song was recorded and co-produced by Tomas Dolas (Mr. Elevator, Froth, Oh Sees) at Studio 22 in Los Angeles.

"Earthbound is the feeling of coming back to life," Lola Jean states. "It's that moment when you overcome grief to see the world with new eyes -- grief over what the earth is going through, the inevitability and the scale of it, but also personal trauma, because they are linked. I started healing from both when I realized that. Terrible things are happening to the earth right now but it is still beautiful and we can still care for it and keep it beautiful. The same can be said of those of us who have suffered abuse and trauma. We can still heal regardless of the damage and we are still beautiful, sometimes more beautiful with the damage. The only constant is change."

Hinting on synthpop, new wave and electroclash, the stylishness of Death Hags' music and aesthetics rises to attention with ample potential, and the promise of more material of this caliber to come, as the artist is currently working on a multimedia project and collaborating on tracks with Hunter Burgan of AFI.
