J*Davey frontwoman Jack Davey is launching a 3-part solo project designed to show a different side of her creativity. Apparently inspired by such artists as Nirvana, Lou Reed and David Bowie, Jack has traded the sound J*Davey fans have grown accustomed to–lush, sexually-charged electronic soundscapes–for something grittier. In the process, she’s taught herself the guitar over the last two years. Should be interesting to see what this exploration yields.
The press release for the 3-part L0-F! project explains the EPs that will follow thusly:
L0-F! Side A, which features a gritty, frenetic energy, based on what Jack describes as “a girl, her shitty guitar, and introspective songwriting,” will be released on October 2nd. L0-F! Side B, which features more instrumentation, more advanced guitar techniques, and production by Jack’s boyfriend, Joey Strat of The Knux, will be released on November 6th. A deluxe version containing both sides, along with three bonus songs, and a special booklet will be released on December 11th. To accompany the album announcement, today Jack Davey is releasing Side A standout track “Howl At The Moon,” with a music video directed by her longtime friend Devin Joplin in collaboration with creative directorJasmine Benjamin.
Here’s the aforementioned video for “Howl At The Moon”:
