Indigo Sparke has put out a new single, ‘In the Garden’, alongside an accompanying video. The track was co-written by Charlift’s Patrick Wimberly and produced by Jake Portait of Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Check it out below.
“This song was born out of a mystical connection to Mary Magdalene,” Sparke explained in a statement. “To her grace and myth in a time when there were only unanswered questions and chaos. To all the different faces of her through time. The mother, the whore, the healer, the maiden, the crone, the priestess. I was astounded by how she manifests through women now in the 21st century and how more and more women are rebelling to be trapped by the limiting boxes of just playing one role. What is the myth of sinning? How did we separate from nature after the story of Eve and the apple? What knowledge did the seed contain? It seems that women were often the bringers of consciousness and that the patriarchy monopolized off this connection to the void and all creation. I wanted to explore this in the song and create a sphere and portal for all archetypes to be explored without prescriptive commentary. Something to move to and feel free in.”
