“Moth”

E+E, a.k.a. Elijah Paul Crampton, has just unveiled a new track, “Moth,” the first since his recently released, fantastic debut, THE LIGHT THAT YOU GAVE ME TO SEE YOU. The song, a voluptuous three-minute track of dramatic swells and heart-wrenching harmonies, features Crampton-penned lyrics spoken by Money Allah. As usual with E+E’s work, the song is ridiculously over-the-top, adopting a sort of big-box aesthetic designed to manipulate feelings and uncomfortably stir emotions. But it doesn’t matter: this is a reflection of our own histories, suffocated yet simultaneously opened wide by harmony’s totalizing, hegemonic nature.

The result? A clown, hunched over, tired of his own act.

“Moth” is a demo for a new work called Shenandoah, expected to be released sometime this year.
