“She had a habit of joking about her own death, and through her broken English she would say that when she died she was going to ‘the other moon’.”
“The Other Moon” sees Sara May, the artistic force behind Falcon Jane, paying tribute to the loss of her Nonna, her grandmother. Although the two women were from different generations, and speaking two different languages, they understood each other in a way deeper than words.
In "The Other Moon", May explores not only that terrible loss, but also the intimate experience in getting to know yourself again afterwards, 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.
