At just nineteen years old, singer Maude Latour is already somewhat of a globetrotter. Her parents’ path of journalism has given her a home in Hong Kong, London and Stockholm, and over the years Latour’s become fluent in Mandarin and Dutch.
Maude has spent the past year translating her own philosophies and political ideals into a musical universe interspersed with themes of transcendence, religion, and love for her best friend.
Maude has released “Plans”, the new single from her upcoming EP and produced by Alexander 23. In “Plans” Maude trills animatedly over an ethereal soundscape, mid-tempo clunking drums, and phantasmagoric digital flourishes. Her vibrant DIY aesthetic is at once playfully nostalgic and brilliantly forward-thinking.
“‘Plans’ was a song I wrote in a backyard when I first went to California alone for music. It streamed out of me after hours of meditation and introspection. At the time, it was about a special moment of meeting someone for the first time… eyes meet across the room. But I’ve come to realize the song is about me, how I love. We phrase love as if it’s another person effecting us, but in actuality, it is ourselves changing and evolving and growing. Through love and heartbreak and crushes we see what we need and who we are. ‘Plans’ is a feeling for me; a warm and shimmering start of something new.”
Maude will perform Neon Gold’s Pop Shop NYC on July 18th at Baby’s All Right.
