Jon Darc‘s latest release, Virginity, delves into the struggles of a youth navigating their homosexuality within the confines of a religious upbringing. The song weaves shivering synths, stuttering beats, and a tearing distorted bass to underscore the fragile and indecisive mood of the verses. Stoic choruses and a crescendo in the bridge build towards an angry and dire climax, offering a companion for moments of sadness or anger.
The accompanying video unfolds in parallel narratives, exploring Jon’s past and presenting an allegoric interpretation of inner conflicts and desires, depicting the tension between personal yearnings and familial comfort. Thommy König and Lori Baldwin contribute compelling performances in these respective roles.
