Moving pop forward is 20-year-old Maude Latour. Her unapologetic sound and message are here and turning heads.
She recently released her new single Furniture.
The song has a surreal quality. I like the catchy elements. Besides, the vocals are sublime. Furthermore, I am also a fan of the shimmery guitars, wavy synths, and driving percussion.
Lyrically, Maude is very talented. She knows exactly how to deliver. Her writing skills are impressive.
The song comes equipped with a playful official video, reminiscent of some early 2000’s MTV gems, where Maude maneuvers her own personal drama while life goes on around her. The video features friends from Columbia and was directed by Maude herself.
On the single she says, “This song actually saved me. I didn’t think my heart could actually break, but it turns out I’m human like everyone else. I wrote this song at the lowest moment of my break-up, and the power and healing I had after creating it started me on a road to finding myself again.
But the song became itself when it became the anthem that I needed. I remember waiting outside on a cold November morning to accidentally run into my ex. I was blasting this song, and suddenly I felt invincible. He and I had a conversation, we both cried, and he started to walk away. I was sitting on the steps to the library at Columbia University, watching him look back once more. But for the first time I wasn’t crushed as he walked away. I had a secret. I had this song. I put my headphones in and laid down on the concrete stairs. I started blasting the song and crying and laughing at the same time. This song was my healing, this was me. I hadn’t lost myself. Here I was, writing my world, writing my existence into the history of humanity, nothing was lost, nothing was in vain. This song hasn’t lost any of its power to me.”
