    A physical CD of the "Maiden" EP from the "Maiden, Mother, Crone" trilogy.
    The final EP in the "Maiden, Mother, Crone" trilogy of EPs. First 50 copies sold on pre-order will be signed and numbered. All other copes will be signed.

    The "Maiden, Mother Crone" trilogy looks at pagan imagery within modern narratives on women.

    THE MAIDEN
    The Maiden is an emergent character - only allowed to "be" in a context of innocence and naivity. Her battle is to become what she is, despite any negative judgements over what are considered transgressions from the archetype (naivity, innocence, nascent sexuality).

    THE MOTHER
    The Mother character wrestles with balancing societal expectation with what she herself wants from her life. She is the character society often feels completely entitled to judge, touch, and regulate. As a result she is the moral body and struggles with both external assessment and with what to do when her attempts to do what is expected of her not work out as planned.

    THE CRONE
    "The Hag", or Crone was once seen as wise, but the elderly today are often simply marginalised or overlooked entirely. The "Crone"'s invisibility however, has another side. She can be as political as she likes, and many of her songs are just that. The Crone is more outside the gaze of what is expected of women (attractiveness), compared to the other two figures, so is allowed to speak her mind. It is a voice within her voicelessness , and an identity that she herself has some power to construct.

    More information on the background and mythology behind the album is available on Jordan's blog here.

about

A tale about distractions and the lure of constant engagement with the culture of consumption.

lyrics

So you ran from the quiet, cos it made you feel strange
And outside you heard voices and the pull of the crowd
So you ran amidst faces and fluttering hands
Oh you joined the parade of those smiles that avowed:
your day is yet to come.

And amidst whirling dancers a man took your arm -
offered up two for one, the best deal you could earn.
He said "Pay nothing now. Just enjoy and enjoy
and come follow the witches while the beat still allows
cos your day is yet to come".

So you banished the quiet, as a cure for your sanity
to shout with the rest, as a stage for your vanity
Oh don't look away from the heave of the masses
the Reaper, they say, does his work where the quiet is
and your day is yet to come!

But all fevers grow tired, though a crowd cannot see
and they'll pull you along on your stumbling feet
and you'll see in the shadows that stir on the sides
that the quiet still calls, which you swapped for the tide.
Oh your day is yet to come?

So stop, and just breathe. And then do it again.
And hope hard that the noise in your head will die down
cos your ears they will ring till you know you've gone mad
and that someone has taken the one thing you had
and your day has been and gone.
