Newcastle alt-pop riser introduces her new project...

North East talent Maebh has shared her new single 'Wild Strawberry'.

The Newcastle artist is building her own universe, a talented producer and songwriter whose alt-pop sheen is proving to be irresistible.

Her new EP 'By The Way' is incoming, a sizzling seven-tracker that taps into that summer feeling.

"I’m so excited to be releasing my debut EP. I've been working on it for the last couple of years and I feel like it’s really reflective of me as a songwriter and producer. There are songs about relationships, songs of longing, and songs of sadness," she explains. "Some are funky and one is mostly harmonicas. Most of these tracks were written in the first lockdown when I was lucky enough to be living in the countryside in Cumbria. We strangely had a drought and day after day of perfect weather. When I think back to making these songs I think of coming back off the hillside at 6pm and dancing alone at golden hour, lime green leaves and hot hazy afternoons."

Effervescent new single 'Wild Strawberry' is online now, and it's a succulent return, blessed with hazy synths and that dulcet vocal.

Crafted during the expanse of lockdown, its luxuriant tones aim for a glimpse of much longed-for freedom.

"I made 'Wild Strawberry' during the first lockdown and it's probably my most fun and playful song yet. It's about being hungry for more than stable love. The strawberry is a metaphor for a crush. It's super dreamy- think hazy long afternoons in summer full of lust and longing."
