A few days after finishing a short run of sold-out live shows at The Echo, rising alt-rock singer Meg Myers has shared a new song.
“Jealous Sea” features some serious Nine Inch Nails-esque production as Myers waxes poetic about having issues with insecurity, projecting them on her partner as jealous rage. Listen to the song below:
“This song can best be explained by a recent text message I sent my boyfriend while PMSing,” Myers told EARMILK, who premiered the track Wednesday. “‘Don’t fucking follow her. Unfucking follow her. Fine. Keep following her. And have fun with that. I’m out.’ Not to mention my Venus in Scorpio.”
“I want you to tell me what to do / I want you to tell me what you need / When you look at me like you do / Don’t leave, I just can’t get enough, I just can’t enough,” Myers sings in the chorus. It’s no surprise that when she sings this live, she has a crazed, maniacal look on her face.
“Jealous Sea” follows “Numb” and “Take Me To The Disco” as the third single from her upcoming album Take Me To The Disco. The sophomore record of Meg Myers drops July 20 via 300 Entertainment. I’ve been listening to my advance copy plenty since it first appeared in my inbox, and I’m counting down the days until I can share some of my other favorites from the album with y’all.
Meg Myers will also be playing shows at the Observatory in Santa Ana on September 15 and a show at the El Rey Theatre on October 17. You can find tickets to those shows here, as well as her full fall tour schedule.
