With her recent debut single Sinner, Maimuna Memon has added a new dimension to her multifaceted artistry, which has already won her the Fringe First Award for her self-written, one-woman show, Manic Street Creature, and an Olivier Award nomination for her role in Richard Hawley’s Standing At The Sky’s Edge.
Insomnia relies on subtle pop instrumentation that doesn’t steal the spotlight, but allows Maimuna to take the lead. Her performance comes across as sincere, enticing you to listen to each word she sings. She complements the guitar melodies to perfection.
In Insomnia, Maimuna explores the intimacy of the small hours with a love interest, revealing a wealth of questions and vulnerabilities that remain hidden in daylight. The lyrics are well thought out and poetic in style.
It’s fascinating to see how Maimuna builds her own universe piece by piece. Check out Insomnia below!
