Don't Leave Me Without Your Love
From Act Your Age
Since she was eleven, Maisie Bourke has been producing her own songs. Writing, recording, and mixing herself into a music career from an early age has helped her achieve a remarkable talent. Her new EP wants to explore the art of growing up and finding our feet in the world. Called Act Your Age, it perhaps asks us to look at ourselves with less than rose tinted glasses. What is maturity anyway? Is it simply about how we learn to cope with the world? And what if the world we grow up in changes when we're older somehow and what we have learned doesn't help but hinder? It's a complicated paradox when we grow up, it feels that we are all children inside with our own methods of dealing with being who we are. Don't Leave Me Without Your Love is one song from this EP. Featured as a single, you'll be able to catch it on the Deuce Radio Show.
It starts with a subtle organ tone, calmly breathing in a silent room. Maisie begins to sing, her fantastic voice trickles over the icy-cube notes and as a thick liquor, she begins to fill the glass. Then, when a vital point is reached, the flow swells to capture us with the chorus. High energy projection in the voice matches a push in the composition to bring the feelings to a new peak. Rhythm builds and throws in a catchy dance-step we can all get in the groove with. Repeating lines and fairy-tale lyrics about love and life spin a tale of imploring desire to stay close.
