London based producer Lara Jones shares new single ‘Scissors’, the second single to be shared from her captivating new EP Fig due out June 16.
Lara’s fiery and gritty new single ‘Scissors’ is the most private and personal track on the EP, capturing the euphoria of eros love and queer intimacy by incorporating vocal samples taken from a recording from an intimate moment between Lara and her wife. Jones’ took inspiration from White Noise’s 1969 album An Electric Storm, particularly from ‘My Game Of Loving’, notorious for its bizarre use of orgasmic sexual sounds. She felt it was important to celebrate queer sex and represent how it could sound through music. “When I was growing up, there was such little representation of queer sex in TV, movies, music and even sex education, it was just a non topic” adds Lara. Her new single ‘Scissors’ proudly celebrates these intimate and beautiful moments of queer love that are often not discussed.
On the track Lara says: “I love performing this tune live, it’s cheeky and it makes me smile to play it. I love it when people vibe with the energy to it. It’s a sex positive tune that celebrates the LGBTQ+ community I’m proud to be a part of.”
