Moving out and moving on—it’s a part of life we all had to face, whether we knew it was coming or not. Empathetic and omniscient, vocalist Miriam Devora of Philadelphia's Queen of Jeans takes an outsiders perspective on their new dreamy track “All the Same,” off their upcoming record If you’re not afraid, I’m not afraid, out August 23.
Accompanied by a music video that pictures the singer serenading different couples, it’s a track about coming to terms with the inevitable, even when you can’t seem to let go just yet.
There’s something special in the way that the first pre-chorus floats as the camera pans to frame a foggy city skyline that encapsulates the way it feels to listen to Queen of Jeans. It's uplifting while still maintaining the honesty and vulnerability that Miri had to face while writing the new record in the wake of ever-shifting political climates and the recent loss of her mother.
“I found myself in fear not only of losing my mom to her illness, but of losing my space within society as a queer woman, and watching space get taken away from so many others.”
Those emotions are what formed If you’re not afraid, I’m not afraid, along with help from producer Will Yip.
“All The Same” was born from watching the disintegration of a friend’s partnership: the closed off hands that don’t want to be held, the subtle pull away from a partner’s touch—it’s all familiar imagery that echoes the uncertainty as the wheels on a relationship screech to a halt… but you’re still left looking for a ride.
“The song was kind of an examination from the viewpoint of the person that hadn’t moved on yet, and what that might have felt like,” she concludes. “That aggravation of knowing both too much and not enough, and the experience of such a significant relationship unraveling while still tethered to one another on levels beyond romantic.”
