Amsterdam based singer Mazey Haze has today released her debut single “Sad Lonely Groove”, a dream-pop infused heartbreak ballad that draws sonic melodies and movements from the likes of I Break Horses and Beach Fossils.
Growing up surrounded by music from ABBA, Tears for Fears, Talk Talk, Fleetwood Mac and The Bee Gees, Mazey Haze started writing songs at age 13 before recording full demos on her laptop by the age of 16 – experimenting with different genres, sounds, decades and production elements.
Speaking on her debut single Mazey reflected:
“The song is about me feeling the lowest and loneliest I’ve ever felt in my life. I hadn’t built lots of friend relationships yet and I forced myself to be alone with myself. It’s about missing the guy I thought I was in love with. It’s a stream of thoughts that were circling around in my head all the time. It was the first time that I realised I wasn’t able to be happy by myself and was very dependent in the past relationship. Suddenly I had to meet and get to know myself, something I had never done before. When I wrote this song I was still running away from it all.”
