Feature: We Play 'What Song...' with Maja

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Brisbane based soul/folk singer-songwriter Maja recently released her single ‘Wake Up And Find’, which is also a slice off of her sophomore EP Still Bleeding (due on August 4th). Maja will also be embarking on a tour this September! Check out some of her fave songs below.

What song reminds you of your youth?
'Leave Before the Lights Come On' - Arctic Monkeys. Anything by Arctic Monkeys really. I was obsessed with them as a teenager! 

What song is your ultimate party track?
'Bitch Better Have My Money' - Rihanna because it reminds me of party times in Greece. Also 'Somewhere in America' by Jay-Z is up there! Gotta love pop culture references! 

What song do you listen to before you jump on stage?
At the moment it's 'F.E.M.A.L.E' - Sampa the Great. Because it makes me feel like a confident, empowered F.E.M.A.L.E. 

What song would you make your theme song?
'Little Bitty Pretty One' - Thurston Harris. It's in Matilda in the scene where she makes everything come alive! Also my theme song would have to be a song you can dance to on the street and this is definitely that! 

What song reminds you of your first heartbreak?
'One last time' - The Kooks. The Kooks were pretty popular around the time my first heartbreak was happening. This was around the time of iPods and when people broke up with you via text. 

What do you have on repeat right now?
'Daisy' - Laura Marling. I saw her sing this solo at her concert and was obsessed ever since.
