Primordial Radio is excited to announce that Marisa Rodriguez from Marisa And The Moths is taking part in the Radio Residency for the month of May.

The Radio Residency is hosted by Adam Whalley and is a series of shows that air every Wednesday at 10am. Across the Residency, Marisa will be discussing their new album What Doesn’t Kill You, the challenges they faced during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the cathartic nature of their music.

Marisa shares her favourite tracks from Sleep Token, Spirit Box, Sophie Lloyd, Loathe, and Pierce the Veil. They also talk about the evolution of heavy music and the process of incorporating heavy vocals into their songs.

Speaking about their video for the new single Just Like Me, Marisa comments:

I wanted to create a video for this song that represents how it feels for me, which is stormy, chaotic and emotionally explosive. The solo performance of the song was decided as a way to not overcomplicate it, and to let the music speak for itself, as the music already has many layers to it. To keep visuals interesting, we played with angles, crystals, and even a broken mirror, which really helped to portray a feeling of “distorted reality”, which helped to portray the meaning of the song.

Listen To The Marisa And The Moths Residency

To listen, simply tune into on Wednesday 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd of May from 10:00am (BST).

If you miss any of the shows you can listen back on-demand. Episode 01 is available below.

Penned during the Covid lockdowns whilst Marisa was personally healing from an abusive relationship, ‘Just Like Me’ offers a narrative of inner turmoil, delving into the depths of insecurity and anxiety when viewed from an individual perspective. However, when viewed through the broader lens of humanity, it emerges as a poignant reflection of our collective struggles. Marisa‘s lyrics serve as a reminder of our innate capacity for self-destruction, urging us to confront our flaws and strive towards a better future for all.
