    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.

    NOTE: if you are in New Zealand or Australia, this EP will be available via Powertool Records (also on bandcamp) as of April 27 2015. You can order from them to save on postage, but the copies won't be signed.

lyrics

We moved to the city
Three girls, young toys
We heard life in the noise
They told us "money makes you pretty -
so go dance for the boys, dance for the boys"
We have the same enemy
We have the same enemy.

New sarrogate family
with pockets full of holes
no holds barred
the goals are:
Look at me look at me.
Reflect me through your eyes,
make me ten feet high
We have the same enemy
We have the same enemy.

We have the same enemy
No hands no face all states and slates washed clean
we have the same enemy
devides us into "I"s,
devise, polarise, vanity
We have the same enemy
We have the same enemy.

We have the same enemy
No hands no face an arms race in state policy
we have the same enemy
Just keep calm and buy
devide, polarise, apathy
We have the same enemy
We have the same enemy.
