‘Done playing possum’
meija is the project of LA-based Jamie Sierota. Sierota is a respected producer and writer that boasts an impressive CV.
‘Possum’ is a single that follows his debut record ‘Do Ya?’, which came out early this year. Somewhat bizarrely, it features Mark Oliver Everett of Eels fame, who lends some vocals and some pantomime drama via the staged discussions between the two that punctuate the song.
On the track, meija experiments with warm, fuzzing guitars and a shuffling beat while he muses on the need to stop hiding and start facing pain and difficulties head on.
