Like most of the best things with a Scandi flavour, Norway's Maud (Kristine Hoff) hints at a chilling darkness on her new single 'Baby Girl'.
After releasing her debut single ‘Real' and follow-up ‘Bad Things’ last year, the producer and singer-songwriter has arguably come up with her best yet with the introspective, self-produced 'Baby Girl'.
“‘Baby Girl’ is an ode to becoming an adult," she explains of the song which explores anxieties of growth, adulthood and belonging. "These stages of life can be filled with a lot of uncertainty and restlessness because we don’t know yet who we are or who we’re going to be."
The layered sonics augment Maud's echoing, distorted vocals against an experimentally worked backdrop of atmospheric synth and drum machine, building to a striking electronic crescendo as she sings, “you’re all alone my baby girl."
