MADDISUN IS MODERN FOLK REVIVAL: LISTEN
Updated: Jun 11, 2021
SOUNDS LIKE: Wild Rivers, Jade Bird
Canadian artist Maddisun recently released her album "Self Reflections" on all streaming platforms, and it is unlike anything we've heard before.
The album fuses traditional folk with modern sounds, and it sounds both timeless and trendy at the same time. Starting off with a song called "Mountain Air", Maddisun immediately pulls us in with a track that does all the right things. This tranquil, yet energetic release feels like it was made specifically for the listener, and it masterfully creates a warm ambience that makes you want to keep listening. As the album progresses, we discover "Differences", which is perhaps our favourite track on the album. The lyricism and production on this track is impeccable, and it's an exquisite demonstration of fusing the fresh and the familiar. Whether it's the song's grooviness or message, this one is exactly what we need to hear all the time. Maddisun ends the album with "Contrast", a vulnerable track that radiates relatability. This one is where Maddisun's vocal really shines through, forcing you to stop and listen. When the song ends, you can't help but replay it, just basking in Maddisun's artistry.
"Self Reflections" is definitely an incredible achievement, and we're sure that Maddisun will continue to exceed expectations with her future releases.
