“This song is about a powerful, hopeful, and ambiguous feeling of longing. I’m very fascinated by desire and what it does for us, what it means to have some person or lifestyle or creative power as a fantasy.”
NYC based musician and composer Jane Paknia arrives with the debut single, ‘Glimmers’, from her forthcoming EP ‘Orchid Underneath’ released by Eat Your Own Ears Recordings.
Paknia began her unique and alluring musical career learning classical piano at the age of four, taught to her by her Iranian grandmother, a rising star in the conservatory before leaving Iran. Untethered & unconstrained, Jane’s musical talent expanded to brass, playing in jazz ensembles, orchestras, and creating original, modern, big band compositions.
Having spent the last few years touring across the US and Europe as synth-keys player for the likes of Sarah Kinsley, Jane is now ready to launch into her own musical world.
Drawing influences from the likes of Floating Points, Caroline Polachek, and Flying Lotus, Paknia delivers a driving and energetic offering, combining a deep, traditional foundation of sound and composition with a euphoric, futuristic pop edge. Produced by Previn Edwards, ‘Glimmers’ is an intriguing glimpse into a new artist who feels destined to break barriers.
