Champ Major – “Not Slowly”

Champ Major is the entrancing project of Brooklyn-based artist Madison Major, originally from Savannah, Georgia. The beautiful track “Not Slowly” is off Champ Major’s newly released EP, Recipe for Baking
Two Humans Together
. Madison’s croon is haunting and ethereal, reminiscent of Marissa Nadler. Creaking ambient effects and a slow-burning, melancholic guitar line form a gripping atmosphere alongside these striking vocals. The final section sees crying string-like processions accompany the lo-fi guitar tone, after the vocals conclude. “Not Slowly” is a gripping success from Champ Major.
