Toronto-based singer-songwriter Jane Inc. (aka Carlyn Bezic of U.S. Girls and Ice Cream) has returned with a new single today called Contortionists and an upcoming album announcement for Faster Than I Can Take. The track includes an appearance from labelmate Dorothea Paas on backing vocals, and if this first offering is any indication, we’re in for something special on the new record.
Speaking on the new album, Bezic had this to say: “The laws of time have changed / months pass in minutes, hours feel like days.” But as the melody begins to swirl and bend back over itself, a deeper theme creeps in. “At first I thought I was making a record about time,” Bezic explains, “but I was actually making a record about how, in moments of intense anxiety, you’re living in the past, present and future at the same time. A million moments existing at once, real and imagined.”
