“Scab Song” is out via Original Sin

Indie pop force Dora Jar is back with a new single, “Scab Song,” building on the illustrative songwriting and remarkable production fueling her 2021 EP, Digital Meadow.

The song originates from a simple occurrence: “I wrote scab when I was nineteen because I had a scab on my leg that looked like Hawaii, and then I thought about bodies for a while and now, here is this song about that.”

Yet, the results of this gruesome scab are quite magical as lush layers of acoustic guitar and soft percussion creates a breezy track. A true invitation into her world, Jar compares her skin to the sea, inviting listeners to swim around her knee island while later contemplating other parts of the body like veins and imagining what it would be like to travel through them like roadways.

For anyone that’s ever had a scab that didn’t turn into a song as catchy as Dora’s, the release is just a glimpse of the talent and emotional wisdom this young artist holds. Produced by Jared Soloman, the delightful track arrives as the songwriter crafts her upcoming project due in 2022.

Further demonstrating her raw power, Dora Jar also recently unveiled “Swirly Ditties,” the first of four unreleased tunes recorded in Hope, Alaska, with proceeds benefitting the non-profit ICC-Alaska.

Already gaining cosigns from some of the biggest names in pop (Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, Remi Wolf), support from Lyrical Lemonade, Ones To Watch, and Pigeons and Planes, and placements on Spotify’s Lorem and Grimes’ “Ethereal” playlist, Dora Jar embarks on a transatlantic tour with October shows in NY, SF, and LA.
