Sydney’s Bad Moon Born latest single ‘Reins’ delves into the experience of living with Complex Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder, told from the perspective of singer and lyricist Jordan Von Grae. It is accompanied by and emotional and poignant music video.
Jordan Von Grae had this to say about the song:
“I’ve never been particularly open about my struggle living with C-PTSD. It’s difficult to put into words what it’s like maintaining a positive front despite being in a silent war with your own psyche. This track is one of my first artistic expressions detailing my condition, and as such, it felt appropriate for the video to reflect this as well. Voya (guitarist/producer) and I went quite deep with the production on this, with each line and layer holding it’s own meaning, adding a sense of complexity to the piece relative to the topical weight of its lyrics. Whilst the song is incredibly personal, I feel like the notion of maintaining composure in the face of inner turmoil is something many people can relate to”.
Bad Moon Born announced a new EP in February along with the title track ‘Heart From the Hollow’ which
‘Reins’ is Bad Moon Born’s second offering from this new EP.
