There's a new kid on the block, she goes by Maisie Peters and this fresh new face has already started dropping some serious bops. She's only 18, hails from Brighton UK and writes super cute, relatable and very catchy tunes that we are already giving an 11/10.
She just dropped super sweet single "Stay Young" and it's a a heartfelt feel good smash, musing on the highs and lows of good old growing up.
We are high key obsessed with this music video, for A) featuring cats and B) this kitschy jungle aesthetic. More of where that came from please. But dreamy videos aside, this song is seriously stuck in our heads and we don't know if we'll ever get it out.
Maisie got the ball rolling via our good friend ~social media~ uploading some seriously impressive original songs to her YouTube channel. You can still take a listen her first upload "Electric".
The vocals on this girl are out of this world. She penned this tune at just fourteen, can you believe, and has a way with words that truly is a gift.
With her conversational lyrics and narrative based songs, it's no surprise that Peters aspiration was originally to be a writer. It wasn't until she fell in love with Taylor Swift that she realised songs are stories too.
Her debut EP 'Dressed Too Nice For A Jacket' is truly profound and features some seriously beautiful tunes, like "Feels Like This".
This track gives us the feels, and is a love song that possess maturity beyond what you would expect from an 18 year old pop songstress. The video is so cute we're dying, and was made on the go by Maisie, her tour manager and keys player, shot just on her iPhone as a spur of the moment idea. We love it.
She's already had some big names get behind her, we're talking Sam Smith, George Ezra, and Radio 1. Featured by BBC Music Introducing, she grabbed some BIG attention and got some traction behind tracks we are still listening to. "Place We Were Made" is a vibe.
We seriously can't wait to see what this girl comes out with next, because if her catalogue is anything to go by, it's going to be next level.
