At the ripe old age of 18, Canada-born MADDEE is already making waves with her sweet, smoky voice, having “performed for Canadian Music Week, at the Art Gallery of Ontario, NXNE, Bestival Toronto and was recently selected by Red Bull as one of the newest artists in their Red Bull Sound Select program, joining the likes of fellow Toronto musicians Charlotte Day Wilson, River Tiber, and Jazz Cartier.” What’s even more impressive is that she’s performed with one of the most high profile names in music right now, such as Lil’ Yachty and Willow Smith.

Her latest single ‘Weight’ feels more weightless than anything, with the tingling synths providing some sort of electrical entity cancelling out the Higgs field which surrounds her, defying gravity. Consistent swirling overtones provide the track with a futuristic machine-like quality, as though to power the electrical entity ensuing the mellow nature of ‘Weight’.
