Premiere: Psyrena “Jedi Master”

London-based German artist, Psyrena is preparing to release her new EP, Quarantella Rockefella in October. Surviving the Golden Age is excited to premiere her new single, “Jedi Master.”

Psyrena admits the song was inspired by rewatching Star Wars during quarantine. Starting off with an 8-bit synth melody, she said “I was inspired by the wisdom of Yoda and somehow I ended up finding a proverb by Xún Zi, a Confucian philosopher. Two Chinese friends read this out to me and it fit the melody to a T – as if it was meant to be – that’s how ‘Jedi Master’ was born.” Adding a distorted jungle beat, the track is reminiscent of artists like M.I.A. or M Beat.
