Released via Babylegs Records earlier this month, ‘Yours And Not Yours’ is the sublime new single from collaborative project Mesadorm. Formed in 2015 between 5 long term friends, the band is a combination of each member’s musical and artistic influences. Every individual is a performer in their own right: having written and/or recorded with such artists as Goldfrapp, MIKA, Paloma Faith, Rae Morris, The Magnetic North, John Metcalfe, The Unthanks, Hannah Peel and Frank Turner.
New single ‘Yours And Not Yours’ is taken from Mesadorm’s forthcoming album Heterogaster, which will be released in Spring 2018. It’s a track that explores an intense sense of doubt both internally and externally – ricocheting between security and unease with the help of a dirty synth line and urgent, rich vocals.
Speaking of the track, Blythe Pepino (singer/songwriter) said:
“’YANY’ is a purging song for me. It has something of the moment when self-doubt and doubt in everything around us collides. A special kind of doubt I think us ‘beneficiaries’ of the Western Capitalist model are now experiencing. The kind where, perhaps at a certain destabilising point in your life, the kind faces of friends and family and lovers melt into the smiles of the adverts forced upon you for addictive crap you don’t need. It has something of the taste of looking for home when everything you’ve been grown to enjoy carries the smell of burnt flesh and deceit. After that you must learn to look for what joy really is to you because the potential to fill yourself up with the other stuff is very real and very easy and all the while someone else is dying for your comfort on the TV screen.”
