As the saying goes; ‘a comfort zone is a beautiful place but nothing ever grows there‘ and those are certainly sentiment shared by Norway’s rising electronic music star, Maud in her latest single, ‘Baby Girl‘, taken from her upcoming, debut album.
‘Baby Girl’ is Maud’s third offering so far and the second teaser track to be released from her highly anticipated debut, following on from ‘Bad Things‘ which was released late last year to rave reviews from the likes of Chalkpit, Whatthefunk and Music Crowns. The two tracks are a glorious pairing, together they begin to reveal a signature sound emerging from the upcoming producer, songwriter and vocalist. ‘Baby Girl‘ possesses the same dark underbelly as ‘Bad Things‘ but flaunts a far more experimental soundscape.
Effected vocals, alien-sounding synths and a deep, penetrating bassline combine to make the basis of ‘Baby Girl‘. It’s an intense and almost suspenseful combination of sounds that creates an ominous atmosphere as Maud introspectively explores the anxieties of growth, adulthood and ultimately the struggle to find a sense of belonging after moving away from home.
Here, Maud shares the meaning behind her new single:
“’Baby Girl’ is an ode to becoming an adult. These stages of life can be filled with a lot of uncertainty and restlessness because we don’t know yet who we are or who we’re going to be”.– Maud
It’s a feeling many will relate to, the sense of uncertainty and self-consciousness that comes with leaving your home base and the people and things you love the most. Yet, amongst all the doom and gloom, Maud finds a silver lining in the transition and the beauty of how catapulting yourself out of your comfort zone can teach you more about yourself and encourages others to do the same.
