These long, hot summer days don’t leave much energy for dancing, but if you’re looking for a fizzy accompaniment to those chilled park vibes, look no further than the new track from German pop adventurer, Maike.
Hailing originally from Wuppertal - a city rather overshadowed by its neighbouring Düsseldorf - Maike has now made London her home after a brief tenure in the States. Her travels infuse her development as an artist, drawing from a wide range of influences and experiences to craft a bewitching blend of ethereal electro-pop.
‘Paradise’ is her latest cut, which is out today, and shines with promise. Maike’s sweet and breathy vocals glide over a hazy beat, inviting the listener in towards unknown pleasures.
Asked to describe the inspiration behind this cool charmer, in typically enigmatic fashion she replies: “Fresh love. Starry eyed. Manipulative. Heading to unknown places, but the direction feels right.”
Turn on, tune in, and drop out right here:
Catch Maike at her upcoming London shows:
20th September - Music Nights @ Borderline
