“What the hell am I in to?” asks London-based, Spanish songwriter Mavica on her latest single, ‘No It’s Not’. Lifted from her EP, Send Me To The Water, out now via Hidden Track Records; the track is an exploration of uncertainty in the face of unexpected change.
Originally from Cartagena in Spain, Mavica (aka Marta Casanova) blends elements of indie, pop, and folk to create her emotive, smooth sounds. Since the release of her debut EP Gone in 2019, she’s performed at Mad Cool and Vida Festival, as well as supporting the likes of Roo Panes, Blanco White, and Alice Phoebe Lou on their tours. Now, with her second EP, Mavica is concentrating on moving forward, and accepting that change isn’t always a bad thing.
Following on from previous single ‘Ada Road’, ‘No It’s Not’ is another tentative, honest offering from the songwriter. Cautious beats and gentle guitar sounds underscore Mavica’s clear, emotive vocals, helping her to reach a moment of clarity.
Speaking about the track, Mavica explains further: “It’s a song shrouded in honesty, where I admit I haven’t been good to myself and that expectation will often let you down. But it’s good to acknowledge this and move on. Through this I realise that my work is a time machine that I can use to look backwards in order to arrive at some point of understanding where I was and where I am at now, accepting change is can only be good”.
