REVEALS SLOW BURNING SINGLE
“100 DAYS OF SOLITUDE“
In the age of Coronavirus “100 Days Of Solitude” is nothing less than the collective human experience, though Jordan Laser makes it sound 100% sweeter in her latest single release. No stranger to moody, alternative pop, the Sydney-based singer-songwriter and producer continues to build a hypnotising, cinematic presence with the smoky sonics and melodies she delights us with.
In an obvious tilt towards Gabriel Garcia Marquez’ famous novel (100 Years of Solitude), “100 Days of Solitude” was written during the malaise and contemplation of lockdown last year.
On the track, Jordan said, “I was drinking too much, living on my own and in love with a man who’d just disappeared on me. I had this creeping realisation that he wasn’t who he said he was, which proved to be true. So this song is about trying to find hope in a hopeless situation, and coming out with a little more stamina on the other side.”
With it’s lush guitar-driven landscape and tender vocal delivery, “100 Days of Solitude” is a self-reflective ballad that plunges the low points of a love unreturned during isolation. ‘Even when you keep me lonely, I know how to be my only’ she sings, with a bruising sensitivity that carries us through her song like a quiet stream.
Produced alongside Jack Moffitt (ex The Preatures) and mixed by Dann Hume (Amy Shark, Matt Corby, Sticky Fingers), this latest offering is a testament to Jordan’s growing depth and maturity as an artist. The result is both sparse and expansive, with Moffitt’s rich landscape of guitar tones and textures combined with Jordan’s confessional songwriting and delightful melody making.
“Although I felt incredibly lucky compared to so many others, there was a lot of pain and uncertainty for me in 2020 and it resulted in a return to writing at the piano instead of the computer, and to my love of ballads,” she says. “The ballad form just seemed to soothe the soul in ways that other music didn’t at that time.”
“100 Days Of Solitude” follows Jordan’s two recent releases “Slow Motion” and “Battleship,” both of which cemented her signature sound within the world of indie-pop and received praise from Women In Pop, Pilerats, Music Feeds, Milky, Happy Mag, PINNK Magazine and more.
“100 Days Of Solitude” is available on all platforms now.
