Jade The Moon is a collaboration between Vancouver singer/songwriter Jade Moon and Toronto-based production team Bad Cop / / Mean Cop. Together they have crafted compelling synth-pop on their acclaimed debut album Habits and Hinderance (out now on Culvert Music).
The band's new single is 'U Take Care'. In a press release, they explain "The lyrics for 'U Take Care' can actually be perceived in so many ways. This track was conceived after a three day Foals listening binge and recorded loosely into a voice note similiar to our previous track. The track was built around the original voice note recording, which actually makes several appearances on the final final production of the song. At first listen 'U Take Care' may sound like a love song, but if you listen closely it's got a mean streak…."
The track is now complemented by a fine video, written and directed by Chad Rook (his main gig is as a fast-rising TV and film actor). In the group's words, "the video is a dark and symbolic metaphor of how love and hurt can affect us emotionally, physically and spiritually. The clip features Jade being protected by a (quite dark) force that follows her in the shadows to keep her out of harms way." The languid pace and sensual look of the clip make it a winner.
