MAEVE transcends genre in her ethereal debut, ‘Empty’
FFO: FKA Twigs, Sevdaliza
Hailing from the Cayman Islands and fresh on the scene, 21 year old MAEVE is a singer-songwriter and producer now living in London.
‘Empty’ is the debut release from the newcomer, expressing a beautifully unique musical ethos. Full of haunting electronics and ethereal vocals – recalling Imogen Heap’s famous vocoder effects – the track is one that transcends genre, instead showcasing a personal songwriting sensibility that exudes experimentation and ambition.
Around the two-and-a-half minute mark, the track explodes with pulsing bass and heavy beats as if to express a musical freedom, breaking free from the emotional shackles and isolated vocals of the opening.
