A FEW WORDS
“Goodbye I Love You”, the final reveal from Melbourne via Montreal singer songwriter Meghan Maike’s forthcoming debut album is out on September 27th, through Cheersquad Records & Tapes
Echoing the ghosts that reside in the Mississippi Delta where it was recorded, “Goodbye I Love You” takes Maike into arcane field blues territory, the stomps and plaintiff holler paint in textured sepia tones, the undeniable power of her vocal drives this sparsest of arrangements.
“This song describes a moment”, Maike offers. “One when you’re stood stock still in wonder at where you find yourself in life – sometimes good, sometimes considerably less so. It was demo recording day. I had the lyrics written but I couldn’t hear the music. I strummed and hummed – nothing. Then I got it – nothing! Acapella, with foot stomps, hand claps, and some electric guitar.”
“Goodbye I Love You”, follows the remarkable singles “Redbird” and “Chase The Wind”, which announced Maike as a fully equipped performer and won notice from twang adjacent fans and critics. Her debut album Dead Horse Creek which is out on October 27th and available for pre-order now, promises that a new light shines from the inner city, roots scene and will surely win more acclaim for the Montreal maven.
