Jessi Mac share new single ‘Carry On’

London trio Jessi Mac have shared their new single, ‘Carry On’, the latest track to be taken from their upcoming debut EP Border Lines, out on February 4th
 
With soulful and emotive vocals set against a lush blend of tender guitars and sweeping strings, the track is a poignant and prescient statement on the state of our earth. 
 
“‘Carry On’ is kind of a pathetic apology to the planet, like a ‘get well soon’ card from the human race,” explain the band. “We are addressing the fact that we know how awful we are as a species, and yet we carry on with the knowledge that we can do more. In the end, we will blink, and our home will be ruined.”
 
The track is the third to be taken from their upcoming debut EP Border Lines, following their debut single ‘Facial Expressions’, a dynamic slice of glistening pop which features drums from black midi’s Morgan Simpson, and ‘Bedroom Years’, an infectious and emotional anthem exploring existential insignificance with its roots equally spread between hook-laden pop and the distorted expressions of grunge. 
 
Spread across five tracks, the EP is a varied and evocative showcase of their foundations as a band, which seeks to explore the relationship between growing into adulthood with the turbulence of the current political climate.
 
“We have been working on this project for a while – it’s our farewell letter to our angst filled teenage years,”explain the band. “It doesn’t necessarily stick to any style or formula, and collaborations with other instrumentalists have transformed the songs from when we first wrote them. On paper we would seem a little mismatched but – without sounding cliché – it’s our differences that have developed our sound and ultimately made this project so exciting for us.”
