True Blue, solo project of Porches bassist Maya Laner, constructs a highly intentional world for its viewers and listeners. Inhabiting the world of True Blue are playfully evil twins, ruthless cowboys, the femme fatale with the fatal flaw; a fountain glistening under moonlight, a lock of hair tucked under a pillow. As much a sonic as a visual project, True Blue shows are always performative and often involve negotiating props onstage and dance interventions. Laner’s affect invokes desire edged with distrust, keeping the audience just on the edge of a mystery, something never named.w
