Following on from last year’s side project Fenella – the rather beautiful concept album based on the Hungarian animation Fehérlófia, Jane Weaver is back with the new single The Revolution of Super Visions – a very different and all together more pop-orientated single. But don’t confuse pop with the mainstream – the new single is anything but.
The Revolution of Super Visions retains Jane’s cosmic, psychedelic synthesizer sound but is fused with catchy hooks and processed, discordant rhythms to die for that delivers something more akin to St. Vincent or Goldfrapp than her back catalog.
This is a bold move and could open up her music to a whole new audience and so far, feedback on the new single has been largely positive – though there is always the risk of alienating the die-hard fans who prefer the proggier side to her music. Personally, I feel if anyone can fuse the world of prog with pop, it’s the musical polymath Jane Weaver.
“The revolution accidentally happens because so many people visualise the same ideals and something supernatural occurs,” says Weaver. “Everyone is exhausted with social media, inequality and the toxic masculinity of world leaders contributing to a dying planet.”Jane Weaver
