Joyfully schooling listeners in how to make uplifting kitsch-pop tunes under the strangest of circumstances, Æ MAK has shared her latest single ‘i dance in the kitchen’. Featuring the vocals of fellow Irish artist Seba Safe, the track is lifted from Æ MAK’s upcoming EP how to: make a kitsch pop song to show the world, which is set for release on 18th September.
Embracing production duties for the first time on her new release, Æ MAK – aka Aoife McCann – wrote and recorded her new EP during the Covid-19 lockdown period, and ‘i dance in the kitchen’ is the first taste of her delightfully upbeat new sound. Made with “100% childsplay and solo belly laughs”, the track and accompanying video showcase McCann’s carefree and vibrant attitude to letting go of any performance qualms and focusing on making music that makes you feel good.
Based around the idea of being apart from your lover during lockdown, ‘i dance in the kitchen’ will resonate with those who want to transform their uncertainty into an energetic moment of bright and cathartic clarity. Watch the video for the track below and follow Æ MAK on Facebook and Spotify for more updates.
