Neon Indian’s Leanne Macomber and Ford & Lopatin’s Joel Ford have joined forces to form the new electro-pop duo Ejecta. Wasting no time, they’ll issue their debut LP, Dominae, on November 25th through Driftless Recordings. We’ve heard a few album cuts already, including the sparkling “Jeremiah (The Denier)” and buoyant number “Afraid Of The Dark”, and now comes “It’s Only Love”.
Even though Ejecta describe it as an “anti-love song,” the track comes swaddled in pillowy ’80s synths and Macomber’s unbelievably tempting croon. Listen below and see if you can resist.
Also, if you were wondering what all the nudity was about… per a press release:
Macomber describes Ejecta as a character, one that conceptually represents her various inner-struggles, and yet also as a way to “deflect” them. This alternate identity acts a conduit for Macomber’s countless longings, and as such is always depicted completely nude. Leanne explains a desire for Ejecta to be “universal” and “timeless,” and this heartbreaking pop record is certainly capable of being both of those things. But she also refers to the character as both an “everywoman” and even an “everyman.” And in that way, it becomes evident that we are dealing with a character.
