J. GRAVES, DEATHBED EP
October 2nd, 2020
It's coming closer, an arcane cry from your darkest past. "You can't say my name out loud." The final track to release from J. Graves' 'Deathbed' EP is one rooted in mystery, toxicity, addiction admission, and why some things are better left for dead. During a sweet moment of reprieve, Graves writes, "I am a fool for you, I don't know what you do". And as we relive this tense battle, the back and forth, the pleas for help and mercy, and a promise of "never again", we come to find that significant love and loss will remain just that and outlive us all. "I can't believe you could be the weight of my world."
Named for the voice memo number Graves' phone assigned to the rudimentary recording, "331" punctuates the 'Deathbed' EP due out October 10/2/20 on Illumin Records. Only 19 copies of this EP will be cut by hand to vinyl with only 10 copies for sale.
As with all the songs on 'Deathbed', Graves wrote "311" while releasing her debut LP, 'Marathon', and while her relationship was crumbling around her. The Deathbed EP was engineered and mixed by Elly Swope at Destination Universe! and was mastered by Amy Dragon of Telegraph Audio. This EP was engineered completely by amazing women.
EGG DROP SOUP "SUBDIVISION" VIDEO

"Subdivision" is about affluenza. It's about dealing with the self in a world where there are so many standards and practices we’re asked to conform to, yet are expected to do so without challenging them. We also thought it would be hilarious to do a video with a medieval times theme, but with a twist.
