Hedda Mae 2020

Norwegian songstress Hedda Mae brings a delightful slice of summery pop with her irresistible latest track Madness. Indulging us with sugar-sweet vocals, listening to her voice is like letting honey trickle through your ears and there’s a childish playfulness to her tonal quality which makes it completely impossible to resist. Not that you would want to anyways; if anything, you’d be scrambling to put on your dancing shoes and have a boogie along to the disco-infused, exuberant melodies. There’s so much joy and vibrancy that you’ll find yourself forgetting about reality for the duration of the song, instead getting lost in the infectious rhythms and exultant brasses in a flurry of textures and effects that will whizz by you in an interstellar bop.

Speaking more on the track, Hedda explains:

‘Madness’ was written during the first session we had had in a while. Because I live in Bergen and my producer Benjamin Giørtz (Tiësto, Betty Who) lives in Oslo, and the country had just started allowing people to travel again within Norway. It’s a buzz to be finally able to do the thing you love again, and that was probably where the bubbly, playful vibe in this song came from. The lyrics are about when someone suddenly becomes interested in you and gets really friendly, and you question yourself about where they’re really coming from. Because other people’s intentions often aren’t good, and you know you shouldn’t get involved really, but it can be difficult to keep yourself away.
