“Relief” is an unmistakably brilliant and euphoric synth-pop dreamland that showcases Madeline’s ability to create intoxicatingly compelling pop music. This addictive track highlights Madeline’s hauntingly rich voice and sophisticated lyricism on top of an intricate lush-layered production.
Madeline shared, this song is centered around a relentless feeling about “a short term solution for a long term problem and the consequences of the gray area you find yourself in when you don’t solve the root of the issue.” Sonically, she masterfully conveyed this sentiment by featuring mechanical drums and an arpeggiated line repeated through the song.
One might be able to notice Madeline is influenced by artists such as Christine and the Queens and Oklou, but she has been able to cultivate her own unique sound that is entirely her own… and it is truly remarkable.
“Relief” previews Madeline’s sophomore EP due early next year that is executive produced by Jack Kleinick (Little Jet, Appleby, grant perez, gigi), who also produced her debut EP, Don’t Put a Dog in Danger. This EP is sure to contain many more exhilarating and intelligent musical creations like this one.
