New York based artist Maisie May has revealed her stunning new single ‘Face it’ which also marks as the title track for her upcoming debut EP due for release on the 14th of May.
This singer, songwriter and producer is making herself known via her upbeat, catchy and sophisticated synth-pop soundscapes. The production really does steal the show in this glittering new number, filled with movement inducing rhythms and layer upon glorious layer of expertly selected synths, resulting in a refreshing brand of high definition pop that is bright, bouncy and authentic. Maisie delivers a beautiful vocal performance with her sweet, light and delicately produced voicing. Game like, futuristic and cyber, this special brand of pop Maisie is creating is as exciting as it is utterly original.
Discussing her new single, Maisie reveals:
“I first started writing ‘Face It’ after working a night shift at my restaurant job. I had just gotten my job back after being unemployed for months through the pandemic. I was physically tired, but my brain was feeling creative and chaotic. I sat down at my computer and almost immediately recorded the bass-line that now shapes ‘Face It’. Within a few minutes I had finished writing the first verse and the chorus. Some projects take a really long time to complete, but ‘Face it’ was one of those songs that effortlessly fell into place. It felt like writing this upbeat, empowering song gave me the energy I needed after feeling exhausted for months. It’s the first song I’ve produced that really makes me want to dance which is why I’ve been ecstatic to release it since the day I put down that bass-line.”
