For Immediate Release - Black Panda PR - New York, NY - October 6, 2015 -  Art rock project herMajesty plans to self-release their new EP “My Body Your Mind” on November 4 and gig the northeast in support throughout fall and winter.  They share the title track with P&W readers exclusively today in advance of release.


“My Body Your Mind” reflects an eclectic indie-glam sound that began with their July 2014 release “Crystals” featuring Fountains of Wayne guitarist Jody Porter’s psychedelic stamp.  April’s Bowie-esque “Fashion Trance” followed  February’s “Days Turn to Nights.”


“My Body Your Mind” is the story of an immigrant son at a point in time where the experience of migration and dislocation and the desire to love and survive resonates in, and in spite of, the images from a 24-hour news cycle replete with negation, death, and pandering politicos.


In the recent photo sequence of JP, lead singer of herMajesty, by Alice O’Malley, the story is written on his body using lyrics from herMajesty's songs that play with the tension between fate and destiny.


“My Body Your Mind” implies that the experience of emotional and physical trauma is grafted in memory and skin; that the fallout is, at once, fleeting and permanent, current and timeless, visceral and physical - like the song itself.


“My Body Your Mind” incorporates an ancient Middle Eastern instrument called the oud to amplify the immigrant son’s blues. The use of the oud and bouzouki flow in and out of the dramatic, mysterious wall of sound that integrates psych rock, new wave and world influences.


At once specific and ambiguous, explicit and implicit, the themes of survival, loss, memory and desire resonate in the aching melody that captures the universal and timeless wish to be loved despite the damage done.


herMajesty has been putting out music consistently since forming in NYC several years ago. They’ve shared the stage with acts like B-52s, Tom Tom Club, Boxer Rebellion, 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), Dov Manski (keyboards) and Konrad Meissner (drums, percussion). Keyboards on “Crystals” were handled by Dayle Raymond Jellyman.
