CA-based Spacemoth (Maryam Qudus of Doe Eye, Zelma Stone producer) announces new single & video for “Asking For You”

The track is from her forthcoming 2021 full length LP. In the Kimber-Lee Alston-directed video, an homage to Daft Punk’s “Da Funk” allegorically works through an intense reality: the fears that women disproportionately carry in a world of omnipresent harassment. The song was written after a teen neighbor of Qudus was assaulted on her block in broad daylight. “You always have to watch your back,” Qudus explains. “When I sing ‘Asking for You,’ I’m asking for people to stop hurting women.”
