Listen: Megan Lara Mae – Mask
Megan Lara Mae is a 20 year old multi-instrumentalist and singer songwriter based in Brighton who is set to release new single 'Mask'. The song explores the themes of deception and lies bundled in a sea of electro-pop.
The first thing that strikes you when listening to Megan is her crystal clear vocals that sit effortlessly over the intricate electro beats.
The song constantly seems to build with a rockier edge being introduced towards the end of the track. The maturity behind the lyrics are beyond the 20 years of Lara Mae. This may come from the fact that she began to write her own music at the tender age of 12. Mask has reflections of Lauren Aquilina and London Grammar but all the while feeling fresh and staying true to Megan herself.
I expect to see a lot more of Megan Lara Mae in 2017 as this single seems made to be a hit!
