Madeline North a.k.a So Below releases her highly anticipated new single ‘Visions’, the fourth and final track from her freshly released second EP ‘II’ which is out now.
‘Visions’ is a four way Kiwi collaboration with co-writers Chelsea Jade and Sam McCarthy (Boyboy), with mixing and mastering done by Aaron Short (Space Above, The Naked And Famous). Sonically channeling North’s love of bands such as Nine Inch Nails and Radiohead, ‘Visions’ conveys a sparse sultry feel – a juxtaposition to the joyous pop overtones of previous single ‘Close’. Sam McCarthy explains, “When we wrote Visions, Maddie was playing us tracks that she liked and I noticed a bit of an industrial theme. It was a fun palette to play with because it contrasted so nicely with the delicacy of her vocals.” Chelsea Jade further expands on the songwriting process, “I always feel like writing with Maddie is like entering deep space. It’s very dark and visceral.”
The message behind the song reflects a universally important theme, and serves as a reminder to stay true to who you are. North explains – “This track is about not getting complacent and stuck in your ways. To continually try to be the best version of yourself – or you might end up leaving behind the person you really want to be.”
So Below has just been announced as supporting act for Now, Now on their UK and European May tour.
