Ezra Jordan – My New Single: “Cliffs”

“”Cliffs” (produced with Elijah Woods, Matt Kahane, Quin Kiu) captures a mood that is both energetic and melancholy; almost like a nervous anxiety. I wanted to encapsulate that weird feeling where you can’t let go of something, even when you know it’s the right thing to do.”

The Saxophones Share “Lamplighter” from Sophomore LP ‘Eternity Bay’

Erenkov wrote “Lamplighter” after playing a show at the Sou’wester trailer resort in Washington state, and at the Lamplighter, where he spent the rest of the evening drinking Fireballs. He says “Lamplighter” is about his attempts to escape anxiety through alcohol and other vices; “While indulging, I often convince myself that I’m on some kind of path to enlightenment, that I’ll find an escape from impermanence and be able to touch the eternal, but all of my hedonistic impulses lead me back to the same reality. And I’m left to face the fact that even the truest love is impermanent. The song takes its name from a bar on the misty Washington coast where I spent an evening drinking with close friends after a show. The night and the following day’s walk on the beach were both enjoyable, but I was particularly struck by how much my conversations, thoughts, and actions were avoidant of the present. Whether through alcohol or simply distracting myself with thoughts of the future, I find ways to fight reality.
