herMajesty @ Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 1
October 16 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
New Wave, Glam, Post-Punk, Indie, Art … herMajesty’s Rock music scales thematic preoccupations of love, loss, surrender, chaos, and hope, over a brooding wall of sound. Their proclivities are well-captured on record and pack a wallop in their live performances.
Their new single “I Saw The Dog,” a collaboration with regional imprint Midday Records, releases as a limited edition 7” vinyl pressing on November 2, 2017, and to streaming and digital stores on November 8, 2017. It is a song that draws a connection between unrequited love, dominant-submissive relationships, and current exploitative political systems.
“The choices we make while in intimate relationships, the qualities of the people we choose to be with and those that we elect to office often communicate our world view. Do we seek to base our relationships and our interactions with the rest of the world on respect, love, collaboration, mutuality or divisiveness, dominance and control? Relationships are political and our political choices are reflective of our experiences in life, our values. As an artist, I communicate my reflections on these issues through my lyrics and the songs that I write” lead singer and songwriter JP comments. “I Saw the Dog” alludes to these issues through references to emotional shaming, control, communist and fascist symbols, waterboarding and imperialist warfare.
herMajesty consists of JP (vocals, rhythm guitars, programming), David Leatherwood (guitars, backup vocals), Joan Chew (bass, backup vocals), and Konrad Meissner (drums, percussion). Additional percussion is provided by Josh Shusterman.
