Listen & Lyrics | Jayli Wolf – Hush

By  | 

Members of the LGBTQ2SIA+ community have been forced to hide for far too long, but Indigenous and Queer artist Jayli Wolf refuses to be silent on “Hush”—the sophomore release and precursor to her forthcoming EP Wild Whisper due out June 18th.

The empowered doomsday cult survivor turned activist, actress, filmmaker, and alt-pop singer-songwriter-producer made an unforgettable entrance with the launch of her award-winning debut “Child of the Government” this year. As we continue to follow Jayli Wolf on her journey towards redemption, “Hush” opens another gateway for post-traumatic growth and enlightenment. With stirring poetic vocals over lush electrified sonics, the three-and-a-half minute song is amplified by an alluring visual in which a liberated Jayli Wolf takes full ownership of her sensuality and unfettered bisexual orientation.

The new single unpacks the multi-hyphenate act’s earliest memories of passion and self-discovery, ultimately plunged by her mother’s family members (devoted Jehovah’s Witnesses).

“I felt immense shame around the truth and who I am. My first true love with another girl (a fellow cult member) was filled with guilt and shame. We would pray together for forgiveness over the desires that we had every day. I believed Jehovah would destroy me in Armageddon,” Jayli Wolf explains, “Being free now, my deprogramming has also allowed me to question the societal conditioning around relationships and sexual orientation. I hope this song brings people feelings of power and freedom in their own personal explorations.”

Like many in the LGBTQ2SIA+ community, coming out and coming to terms with her sexuality was a long, often guilt-ridden process—one that was exponentially difficult in a high-control religious group. While this is her story by her definition, “Hush” serves as an ode for all seeking to advocate their queerness and find power in their truth.

JAYLI WOLF HUSH LYRICS

I feel the pain
Let it in my way
Fire in the eyes I got time

Rain coming overhead
Ride till the suns down low
Wanting you still after all
What’s your answer?

Yeah show me how it works
Lay my body down in gold roses
And the fire in my eyes would you take?
You leave the lights on

Wild, wild, whisper
(Hush)
Time, stops, with her
Wild, wild, whisper
(Hush)
Time, stops, with her

It’s magic how we make up, do you know me?
It’s magic how we make up, do you know me?
I want it all, can you handle love?

Know it’s for me
And I know it’s for you
Know it’s for me
And I better tell you how it works

Rain coming overhead
Ride till the suns down low
Wanting you still after all
What’s your answer?

Yeah show me how it works
Lay my body down in gold roses
And the fire in my eyes would you take?
You leave the lights on

Wild, wild, whisper
(Hush)
Time, stops, with her
Wild, wild, whisper
(Hush)
Time, stops, with…

It’s magic how we make up, do you know me?
It’s magic how we make up, do you know me?
I want it all, can you handle love?

Know it’s for me
And I know it’s for you
Know it’s for me
And I better tell you how it works
