Dora Jar Shares Haunting New Track And Video, ‘Spell’, North American Tour Begins November 3rd

Alt popstar on-the-rise Dora Jar returns with a haunting, tender new track and video for ‘Spell’, inspired by nature’s constant change. On ‘Spell’, Dora’s airy, celestial vocals glide like autumn leaves on a windy day over delicate guitar strums and wispy melodies. “Memory whispering, you were there listening / Ear pressed to the door, Spying / Let me in Magdalene I was always the one / You would toss to the wind / Put a spell on my eyes / Now you’re all over, Hello again,” she sings on the moody track. 

Dora shares, “Spell’ is a song about the feeling of calm before the storm, a pensive reflection and anticipation of change, a wish for a deeper understanding of nature, and a yearning to know my role within the ebb and flow. I usually get seasonal depression in October, which is also my sister’s and my birth month, so I wanted to release it as a gift to honor the melancholy of transition.”

‘Spell’ comes with an official video directed by Dora’s trusted creative collaborator Erica Snyder (‘Did I Get It Wrong’, ‘It’s Random’, ‘Quiver’) that takes us down the enchanted train of seasonal transition. Developed from Dora’s own drawings, the video follows Dora through the forest while dipping into moments of wonder brought to life through special VFX. It’s delicate and deep, allowing Dora the opportunity to explore so much of the beauty in her season of birth.
