Bold, dynamic, and tough as steel, synth-pop artist Steel Maggie creates bittersweet dance-pop for the minimally sane, the moderately restless, and the significantly idealistic. The rising singer-songwriter is set to release a new single, Out of Eden on Feb. 5th.
"Musically, ‘Out of Eden’ is an emotionally charged and theatrical work of dance-pop, with synths that swallow you whole, kick drums that start your engines, and ethereal arpeggiations to awaken the open road within you," said Maggie about the upcoming track. "It is about the total breakdown of who I thought I was, everything I thought I wanted, what I believed to be my place in this world. This song expresses a major Steel Maggie lyrical theme: duality. The duality of the freedom of choice, the exhilaration and the insecurity, the joy and grief of a new identity and leaving everything you thought you knew,” Maggie continues. “In ‘Out of Eden,’ I give up the internal fight, leave the Demolition and destruction behind, and take my own path on the open road."
Steel Maggie made her independent debut with the EP release of Demolition Woman in 2018. Heavily influenced by Lady Gaga, Marina and the Diamonds, The Killers, and Christine and the Queens, her sonic landscape is a shimmering marriage of 1980s-reminiscent dance-pop and her love of dramatic, literary, and mythological themes. With powerful vocals and musings on self-worth, duality, addiction, and recovery, she delivers both incisive introspection and poignant revelations in every song.
Out of Eden explores the price of freeing your soul, the exhilaration and confusion of ending internal war, and the joy and grief from claiming a new identity. The track is written and performed by Steel Maggie and produced by John McLucas and is available on all streaming services on Friday, February 5th.
