BLUE JAY FLEW
Blue jays, with feathers pigmented by melanin, are actually brown. It’s the way the light scatters across the pigment that causes them to appear blue — and that’s why Pompeiii named his album about coming into his own light after these iconically individual birds. Blue Jay Flew chronicles Pompeiii’s spiritual development, from the darkness of drugs and late nights to the luminous freedom of letting them go. Top track: “Lost Boy Peter'' tells the story of Pompeiii’s friends coming to his house to jump him. It’s a listen for anyone going through their own loss, relationship changes, or drug battles.
