Auckland based artist and producer MCK has released the new single ‘Muse’ from her upcoming EP.
McKenzie Comer (MCK) has been turning heads in the music industry since she was a teenager. She first caught the attention of a Nashville music executive who found her on YouTube in 2010. Since then MCK has focused her time on independently honing her craft. ‘Muse’ is a testament to her work as a songwriter and producer.
Coming off the back of the release of her self-produced EP ‘CONFESSIONS’ earlier this year, ‘Muse’ sees MCK continuing to build on her sound and offers a promising look into her upcoming EP.
‘Muse’ blends elements of Pop and R&B and it does it effectively. The track was co-written and co-produced with New Zealand artist and producer Josh Naley (Wells), in what has been an ongoing collaboration for the pair. ‘Muse’ is a cohesive blending of each artist’s style and as a result of this, the song has a unique sound. The chorus is catchy, but there are also strong instrumental hooks throughout the song which is a testament to the producing both Wells and MCK have.
‘Muse’ is a song that is inspired by an admirer’s gaze and the thrill of the chase. ‘Muse’ is a very romanticised and self-empowering song. Lyrically MCK is singing about the sense of self-worth and empowerment that comes from having an admirer. MCK has a lot of vocal depth and range to her voice and offers a fantastic vocal performance on ‘Muse.’
‘Muse’ is a promising first look at MCK’s upcoming EP. MCK is an artist who showcases a lot of potential. ‘Muse’ has solidified her place as one to watch on the New Zealand music scene.
