Amsterdam-based Mazey Haze, the musical moniker of Nadine Appeldoorn has announced her debut EP Always Dancing out October 22nd via LUSTRE, alongside new single “Headspin”. Pre-order here. This follows on from “Sad Lonely Groove“, released earlier in the year which will also feature on the new EP.
Bringing dream-pop sensibilites, Appeldoorn infuses the mystifying vocal stylings of Beach House’s Victoria Legrand with a pop-fuelled groove that will leave you basking in its glowing rays. The juxtaposition of the upbeat melodies and the lyrics of heartbreak only make the sound more devastating. “I was the one who broke your heart / I’m selfish ‘cause I still look for comfort in your arms” she sings over a sea of jangling guitars and searing synthesisers. It’s hard not to lose yourself in this tracks radiant aura.
Speaking on the release of the new single, she said:
“I wrote “Headspin” in the same period of my life as ‘Sad Lonely Groove’. The song for me was an outlet of my doubts and fears at that time. I broke up with my first ever partner in life and wasn’t sure if I’d done the right thing, because I didn’t know how to take care of myself. I didn’t know who I was on my own. It was very scary and I felt very lonely. The only person I really had was him. I felt a lot of frustration. Some moments I did think it was the right thing because I felt that I couldn’t be there for him, I didn’t feel the same anymore. All these different thoughts were making me tired. It was the first time I let go of someone I cared about a lot. But I couldn’t still fully let him go.”
