The once Brisbane based now Melbourne soul/folk singer-songwriter Maja had hinted at her sophomore EP towards the end of last year of when she released the single ‘Hurting Now’.
Now, having found and settled into a new home, Maja has released her soulful single ‘Wake Up And Find’ ahead of the release of the EP ‘Still Bleeding’ (Out August 4).
The track is an eloquently timeless, stripped-back spin on the late 60’s soul/R&B sound for the modern listener. Although written prior to her moving interstate, the meaning of the track seems to correlate all too well with what she has conquered in the last six months.
As upbeat and feel good tune, it’s a three minute listen of motivating joy leaving you wanting more of Maja and that groove. A tasteful old country like vibe is produced by the electric guitar and piano intro that really allows Maja’s vocal capabilities to set that soul/R&B tone that channels the likes of Lesley Gore, The Supremes to Clairy Brown and The Banging Rackets.
There is no doubt that this classically trained Serbian born singer-songwriter has proven her vocal prowess throughout all her previous releases and continues to show a maturity in song-writing well above her young age.
Fortunately for fans of Maja there is more to come with her EP that will have her playing intimate solo shows and festivals in September across VIC, NSW, SA and back in QLD.
Tour dates are been announced soon so hang tight, she’ll be one to watch.
