“The Other Moon” sees Sara May going back to the beginning: her home, her beliefs, and herself. This intention gave her the ability to take another look, to reassess, to breathe. Writing under the Falcon Jane moniker, May explores the intimate experience in getting to know yourself again, highlighting the banal but beautiful ebb and flow of our every day. The new single is an investigation into what it means to be alive and the often painful experience of the ordinary. As someone who describes herself as “emotionally guarded,” Falcon Jane is May outstretched, breaking through the introspective wall and inviting us in on the experiment.
“The Other Moon” serves as the follow-up to Falcon Jane’s Darling Recordings debut album Feelin’ Freaky, which firmly established May’s self-labelled “plez-rock”. Still keeping some of those previously pleasant summer vibes, “The Other Moon” sees May steering towards a darker spiral; one that personifies the often isolating meanderings that come with figuring it all out. “It’s about trusting in yourself and believing in the thoughts and feelings in your own mind,” she says.
“Falcon Jane craft an honest and enchanting track with an emotional impact that lingers long after the last note fades away.”
"The fuzzy, dreamy instrumentals are painstaking in their subtly, allowing vocalist May to steal the show. Her whispered croon isn't demanding of your attention, rather she chooses careful, quiet precision for her process, making for a track that nestles its way into your heart."
