Rising singer-songwriter Madelin is back with her new track “Monarch”, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
“Monarch is inspired by the colorful intensity of the New York City and Brooklyn queer nightlife scene,” says Madelin. “I wrote it at a time in my life when going out and seeing all the unique, beautiful, artistic drag queens and club kids was the only thing making me feel truly alive. Its about being inspired by other people’s creativity and getting closer to your own, feeling the collective energy of misfit humans together in one space, getting lost in the adrenaline, love, and beauty of a fleeting moment.”
Originally from Venice Beach, and currently living in Bushwick, Madelin’s music is eclectic and introspective. Her sound is uniquely ethereal, with elements of pop, indie, and electronica. Her soundscape includes a myriad of found sounds, manipulated in surprising ways to function in the format of a pop song. She moved from Los Angeles to New York at eighteen to study composition at the Conservatory of Music at Purchase College. In 2013 she released her debut EP entitled Cloud which met critical acclaim for its inimitable sound. In May 2017, she released a self-titled EP, which featured her feminist single “Good List”. Madelin’s second EP, The Peachmixes, was a remix EP of all the tracks on Madelin and featured art, performances, and production by prominent queer artists in the Brooklyn nightlife scene, as well as expertly talented independent producers.
“Monarch” will appear on Madelin’s upcoming new seven-song EP, Then Her Head Fell Off, out May 3rd.
