Following the spring release of her powerful lead single, “Holding On”, JUNO-nominated Indigenous (Anishinaabe/Cree), Queer, activist, actress, poet, alt-pop singer-songwriter-producer and filmmaker, Jayli Wolf, returns with the transformative musical creation, “Blood Orange.” The second track to be shared from her highly anticipated sophomore EP God Is An Endless Mirror, “Blood Orange” is a powerful anthem that encapsulates the resilience of the human spirit, resonating with those who have faced abuse and oppression – Stream / Watch the official video.
“Blood Orange” invites listeners on a journey of empowerment, urging them to find the strength within to stand up against their oppressors and courageously share their stories. Through its evocative lyrics and captivating melodies, this song serves as a rallying cry for survivors, offering solace and inspiring them to embrace their truth and reclaim their power.
“I wanted this song to boldly confront the themes of control, oppression, and societal standards, while also illuminating the courage to break free and reclaim one’s narrative,” Jayli shares. “’Blood Orange’ is a poignant testament to the indomitable spirit of those who have faced adversity, encouraging resilience, healing, and the liberation that comes from telling one’s story.”
Jayli’s eagerly awaited second EP, God is an Endless Mirror, expands on the themes that run through “Holding On” and “Blood Orange”, focusing on topics of spirituality, self-love, awakening, and healing. Set for release on September 22 through Jayli’s own label, ALT EDEN, the album sonically experiments with collected sounds across Turtle Island and fusing both folk and electronic alternative styles and seeing Jayli blend her own poetry with more organic instruments and elements.
“While I was writing this EP, I just kept feeling like there was more I needed to be tapping into,” Jayli continues. “Every song was about losing my mind, barely holding on, and feeling lost. As I reflected on that I realized that I needed a massive change in my life. I stepped back from acting and bought my childhood farm. Then the music began to shift too – into more resolve, more faith and power. And so there is both music from during the shift and after in this EP. And I am excited for what is to come now.”
