Mega Bog has shared a new single, ‘Love Is’, lifted from her forthcoming album End of Everything. Following previous cut ‘The Clown’, which made our Best New Songs segment, the track arrives with an accompanying video directed by Allison Goldfarb. Check it out below.
‘Love Is’ was originally written by Birgy’s close friend Austin Jackson of the jazz-punk band Dragons. “Austin wrote some of the most shameless and relatable love ballads of all my friends, but presented them through punk bands filled with musical witches practicing sex magic publicly in the smallest, wettest, and most haunted basements,” Erin Elizabeth Birgy explained in a statement. “Another close friend, Tristan Jemsek of Dogbreth, also covered ‘Love Is’, and has been an anthem in a specific circle of friends for over a decade. I’ve played a dance version for myself at small, secret shows for years, and finally felt like it was time to share my version with the world.”
The track also features backing vocals from Westerman. “The magic of ‘Love Is’ 100 percent needed a counterpart to plead through the reckoning of love imagined, love’s reality, and Westerman was a noble companion through this musical voyage,” Birgy added.
End of Everything will be released on May 19 via Mexican Summer.
