Serpentwithfeet puts his spin on a Lesley Gore classic with ‘You Don’t Own Me / Canopy’

Serpentwithfeet (aka Josiah Wise) has released a breezy new single, ‘You Don’t Own Me / Canopy’. The first half of the track, as its title implies, is a cover of Lesley Gore’s 1963 single ‘You Don’t Own Me’. Wise’s rift on it retains the original version’s gloomy, downbeat vibe, but spins it through a web of sharp, minimalist beats and summery vocal harmonies.

serpentwithfeet – “You Don’t Own Me / Canopy”

Serpentwithfeet was behind one of the best albums of 2021 so far with DEACON. Today, he’s released a new track called “You Don’t Own Me / Canopy.” The first half is a cover of Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me,” which was was featured in an Orbitz commercial a couple months back. The second half is a serpentwithfeet original called “Canopy,” whose dark romanticism fits right in with the Gore original. Check it out below.

serpentwithfeet on “DEACON”

I’ll never forget the image of serpentwithfeet (whose birth name is Josiah Wise, but who often just goes by serpent) standing in the middle of the Paradijskerk, four years ago during Rotterdam’s Motel Mozaïque festival. The saintly, seraphic imagery of the church seems to amalgamate with the artist’s striking appearance: head shaven and brandishing the inked words “HEAVEN” and “SUICIDE” like arcane incantations. The big golden chandelier hanging from the ceiling reflects serpent’s black-crimson attire, with matching high-heeled boots. During the performance, serpent cradles a worn-out doll tenderly in his arms that has several limbs missing.

serpentwithfeet's 'DEACON' beautifully depicts Black love with artistic romanticism

Josiah Wise, also known as musician “serpentwithfeet," exists in an afro and queer-centric sector of Black rhythm and blues (R&B) music. His second album, “DEACON,” combines much of the honesty and unnerving elements of his earlier work but is repackaged in a lighter and brighter tone. The atmosphere created is...

Best Albums of March 2021: Lana Del Rey, Serpentwithfeet, Selena Gomez, Adult Mom

Though Del Rey’s overall project has remained remarkably consistent throughout her career, her growing disillusionment with fame, and with this country’s prevailing iconography of wealth and success, has loomed large as the national mood has grown more dire. Her observations are somber now, her melancholy placed against a more substantial backdrop. Kids dance the Louisiana two-step in a forgotten bar; a prolonged breakup meets its bitter end; people get high and make out in a parking lot while “the whole world is crazy.” It’s an incredibly bleak yet weirdly comforting sentiment all at once – the notion that one’s personal dramas, the ups and downs of “normal” life, will continue to go on even as the rest of the world goes to shit.

Serpentwithfeet lets love be seen on ‘Deacon’

Serpentwithfeet’s 2018 album, soil, felt like it was underwater — the listener drowned in layers of sound and heavy themes. Nevertheless, the music remained fluid. The final song, “bless ur heart,” was meant to transition to the first song of serpentwithfeet’s latest release, Deacon. The song thus marks a departure from the heartbreak into gratitude for lessons learned.

Serpentwithfeet’s ‘Deacon’ is All About Lush Textures and Laid-Back Domesticity.

Josiah Wise trades in passion for commitment on Deacon, his latest full-length album as Serpentwithfeet. Since his debut Blisters EP, the choir-trained experimental artist from Baltimore has woven an extensive catalogue depicting the tenderness and lushness of queer romance, with a baroque sonic palette that would be as fitting for a bedroom as a tabernacle. Deacon works in a lighter register, with four-on-the-floor beats and pop hooks, although it’d be disingenuous to call this a party record – Deacon is less “clubby,” and more like dancing in your living room with a glass of wine after dinner.
