Discovery: Katie MAC

Finding a fresh-sounding pop track is a bit like unearthing a rare gem. That’s why I got so excited when I heard the latest from American electro pop artist Katie MAC. It’s called Not My Ex.

By Graeme Smith

In many ways Not My Ex is a typical pop song. It’s about conflict-driven love and has a big, hooky chorus. Yet, its hyperpop elements set it apart. Listen on headphones to get the full effect of its big bass beats. They will rumble though your head when the kick in.

The vocals are energetic and have just the right amount of manipulation, and the lyrics are beautiful in their simple innocence.

Katie is definitely one to look out for on the underground pop scene. Check out Not My Ex below.
