Maggie Dave – Old You (Video Edit) [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Atmospheric, dark, meditative

Tell us a few things about your new song “Old You”. What is the main idea behind it?

“Old You (Video Edit)” is a futuristic R&B track that explores the grief of drifting away from someone you used to know. As we continued to produce the song, the vibe slowly morphed inward, exploring traumatic memories that I find challenging, but creatively rewarding places to write from.

Which is your most personal and honest lyric?

“I blame it on a lot of things / On the booze / I think I gotta be smarter / And start blaming it all on you”

What do you enjoy most? Writing music or performing your music live?

Collaborating in the studio with our featured artists and musicians is the most invigorating part of making a song. Encouraging those new perspectives, so everyone feels like they’re contributing something special and uniquely their own – is very important to us.

What would you change in the music industry?

Greater inclusivity on behalf of labels to hire more women, dismantle false justifications that support toxic work behavior and invite diverse perspectives to the table to creatively drive innovation in new music and support new artists.

When not writing music, how do you spend your time?

Jogging at night! And trying to read more.

What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?

Back when you actually had to rent TV shows on DVD, I once had one of the discs for “Six Feet Under” checked out for three months past its due date. I had lost it in my old apartment in San Francisco in 200The late fees were outrageous.

Thank you!
