Maddie Lexandra – “Escaping Light”


Maddie Lexandra delivers a dreamy pop immersion on new single “Escaping Light,” thematically capturing a “magical summer night and infinite possibility and discovery as love defies time,” per the artist. Raised in Hong Kong and presently based in NYC, Maddie hypnotizes with an escalating engrossment here, culminating in a memorable hook past the first minute — with an electrifying guitar tone and soaring vocal ascension combining beautifully alongside the playful keys. The production delights with its consistently laid-back sense of introspection.

A tropical-friendly soundscape lingers throughout in the trickling of keys, meshing cohesively with soulfully serene vocals; the enjoyable aesthetic reminds at points of Arlo Parks. Both the sparser, wintry atmospherics and rousing rock-touched rises succeed in their melodic territories, and moves seamlessly into one another; the structural cohesion and consistently melodic spell makes for a replay-inducing pop success from Maddie Lexandra.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
