Les Jupes premiered their new single, “Introversion” today in advance of its May 6 release date on Head In The Sand, b/w a cover of Sky Ferreira’s “Nobody Asked Me (If I Was Okay)”. The Winnipeg quartet will take to the road on a two-week run of dates, in support, starting May 8 in Chicago, while also previewing songs off their upcoming Fall full-length, which the band recently finished recording in Montreal with producer Marcus Paquin (The National/Stars/Local Natives).
Singer/guitarist Mike Falk said of the two songs, “Introversion” came out of the juxtoposition of this winter. On one hand you didn’t want to walk outside or talk to anyone and you just want to hole up and pack it in and quit everything and do your best to fight off the cynicism and self-questioning, so you start going a little stir crazy and are ready to pop. “Introversion” also sort of picks up where Sky Ferreira’s original leaves off. I know “Nobody Asked Me” is a breakup song, but if you put that aside and just focus on that one title line, it’s such a poignant expression of isolation and frustration and abandonment.”
Les Jupes released the Negative Space EP last October.
