No matter how you feel about “pop” music, one cannot deny that when it’s great it uplifts you, makes you want to move, and fills you with an empowering sensation to go out and shine.
Indie synth-pop singer/songwriter Lindsay Mac has arrived with a powerful collection of 5 songs on her new EP Animal Again.
Known as the classically trained musician who went rogue, Mac followed her inner creative spirit and began writing quirky folk tunes. Recasting her cello as a compositional tool to develop her own flavor of pop music, Ms. Mac began playing the music that emanated from her soul.
On Animal Again, Lindsay has created something epic (in only 5 songs).
Even though the cello is virtually absent here, it ironically feels closer to the symphonies I grew up playing in than anything else I’ve done. It has that swirling and lushness that really brings me back,” she explains.
This EP is Ellie Goulding and Sara Bareilles showing Katy Perry how to craft songs like a Jedi master. You could imagine Dr. Luke or possibly Ryan Tedder behind the boards smiling as the magic happened.
This time the songs, the voice, and the production are out front,” Mac allows before pausing. “But really, for me, it’s always just been about how the music makes me feel and recreating the colors I hear in my head.”
