Discovery: Maya Yenn

Maya Yenn is a London-based electronic pop artist whose lush new track How Much Sadness Can You Swallow? caught my attention.

By Graeme Smith

Written in response to a nightmare, the lyrics of How Much Sadness Can You Swallow? are rich with imagery and the macabre. It’s an attempt to exorcise the demons though and the subtly optimistic electronic arrangement reflects that fact, and the chorus is singalong.

The track is Maya’s second single, following the release of her debut tiptoe earlier this year. She’s got such a fresh and interesting sound, I can’t wait to hear what she does next in her promising career.
