Starting the week with a lush video of the day from Toronto trio jackie. Out today, ‘Leaving Tomorrow’ explores the desperate struggle of a relationship that’s not working but persists anyway.
“It had been years since this horribly horrible relationship I’d been in, but I was still pissed about it. Our producer wanted me to write something on the acoustic guitar so I picked up this busted ‘62 black and white Harmony Roy Smeck and played the first chords of this song. I just sort of ran with this one… “hey angel, where the hell have you been?” I sang, not knowing ‘Hey Angel’ would later become the EP title. No one is an ‘angel’, but we put people on an impossible pedestal. I was in Willow’s (writer/producer) basement and Ruby Waters was upstairs making eggs (or having a beer, I can’t remember which)… I started to BELT, and I mean BELT “I’m leaving tomorrow, figure it out” and from upstairs Ruby yelled out “FUCK YAAAA GIRL, WHOAA” and I knew we had a song. If I can give a word to the wise, if you’re thinking of leaving, just leave. They’ll figure it out.”singer and guitarist Jackie Mohr
The single comes from forthcoming EP ‘Hey Angel’, which has been announced for release on 27 January 2022. It drops just before the band head out on their first ever tour of the UK.
