Jane In Space Premieres New Song “Breaking Glass”
- Brooklyn-based electronic duo Jane In Space has delivered a new song “Breaking Glass” with an accompanying music video, directed by Paul Bland.
The song will appear on their upcoming EP "Gorerunner", which is out July 13, 2018. The EP was produced by Keith Hillebrandt (Nine Inch Nails) and follows up their debut self-titled album, which was released in 2016.
The clip is influenced from 1979's film "Stalker" directed by Andrey Tarkovskiy, drawing psychic powers like David Guetta's "Titanium" with Sia.
Director Paul Bland said of the video;
"When first hearing the new Jane in Space track 'Breaking Glass', the slow, eerie, meditative final scene from Tarkovsky's classic 1979 film 'Stalker' came to mind. Tarkovsky's film is a philosophical study of human desire and the unknown, set within a decaying modern world. I felt the track 'Breaking Glass' evoked a similar thoughtful, contemplative tone, with lyrics even alluding to similar themes of desire, exploration of the unknown and a declining modern society. Creating this video seemed like the perfect opportunity to both pay homage to the great filmmaker while also reinterpreting his work to complement the new song, 'Breaking Glass'."
- Jane In Space was formed by Jesse Jensen and Tom Vickers in 2016.
Jesse Jensen said of the song, “I had a very clear, but not literal, image for how I wanted Gorerunner to sound: the threat of imminent violence from the sharp edge of a knife glistening in the darkness, as the sounds of the forest close in around a lost soul. The feeling of instincts being turned inside out just before the bad stuff. We set out to make every song punch you.”
Vocalist Tom Vickers adds, “There was definitely more immediacy to this music, which influenced my lyrical and melodic approach. One prevalent theme is the isolation of an individual trying to comprehend what their place might (or should) be in an ever-changing society which is becoming increasingly more reliant on technology. At the same time, we built the track on a pop foundation: synths plucking a hook, prominent lead vocals in defined verses and choruses, and almost Motown-esque harmonies in the bridge. For us, the end result merges perfectly our influences as a band.”
