Track: Breathe Again | Artist: Maya Payne


Hot off the trail of her successful single If Only, Maya Payne brings to surface the much anticipated release Breathe Again; a sullen yet liberating tune chock-full of upbeat synth and ardent lyrics!

Floating in with harmonies akin to Norweigan pop princess AURORA, Maya Payne paints a kaleidoscopic soundscape of colourful electronic beats and impressive vocal range. Hailing from Christchurch, New Zealand with a following that reaches as far north as Poland and Canada, Payne consistently delivers an effervescent quality to her work. Whether it's the intersecting genres of alt-pop, trap, future bass, or chillwave, this kiwi singer-songwriter is breaking boundaries as to how music is both heard and created.

“Breathe Again is a darker track for me, I wanted it to feel broody and portray the pain in the song. The chorus however is a wave of synths that show the promise of the future. This track is about wanting to revive a relationship that has gone wrong in some way and bring it back to life.”

As the third single from Payne's upcoming debut EP The Lucky Ones (alongside Only If and We Are The Wild), Breathe Again goes deep with harmony, sub-bass, and dark-pop elements. Toting a bridge that creates an emotional imprint and quickly leads to uplifting chorus lines, the single undeniably has what it takes to work its way into the ears of listeners across the world!
