about

The first single for Maud the moth's next LP, Orphnē, serves as an introduction to the dark, rich and organic musical world of Orphnē.
Rooted in classical, jazz, folk and heavier and darker sounds "As above, so below" addresses the inheritance and circularity of trauma of South European women and culture.

CD/LP PRE-ORDERS WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON

lyrics

Lyrics:

I put the scepter in your hand and picked one truth.

You wrap me round your finger like a price, you queen dethroned.
A sleight of hand, a second chance to grasp the dreams you were denied.
Flicker of hope, prosthetic self.

I put the scepter in your hand.

You carve me bone of your bones, ivory.
A mantle laid at your feet, ultramarine.
You weave me thread of your thread, Penelope.

Buried in gold leaf.
High on your crown
I put a scepter in your hand.
Hight on your crown.
I put a scepter in your hand.
