‘Give A Little’ follows a recent support tour with Haim, and takes inspiration from the sisters in the vocal harmonies of its chorus.
It’s the latest preview of the singer’s upcoming debut album, which we spoke to her about in the new, July issue of DIY.
“In every rom-com movie about life in your 20s,” she told us, “you have your group of people, and you’re all experiencing life at the same time. But I got removed from my peers so quickly that…” she continues before pausing and pulling a slightly sterner expression.
“There’s no context for virality,” she picks up. “There’s also no choice of whether or not it suits the way you express yourself, or the way you like to share your life. I just needed to figure out what the hell happened, and then figure out how I was going to tell people about it. That was the hardest thing… all this stuff happened, now what do I say about it?”
“I never would’ve made an EP by choice,” she says, looking back. “I made an EP because this crazy thing happened to me and I had to put music out immediately. But I never got to finish my sentence. Now, putting a record out, it’s just like ‘OK, everybody slow down for just a second, this is what I actually have to say’, and that feels good.
Maggie is set to play next month’s Reading & Leeds, and follow it up with two London headline shows at KOKO.
