MANE Is The New Pop Force We Need On ‘Save Yourself’
MANE is a name you need to remember. She’s become the new face of new-wave pop in Australia. Her previous single, Chasing Butterflies, took over the airwaves recently and on Save Yourself, she amplifies her already brisk and mesenteric pop tendencies.
With a voice like Lorde, the showmanship of Florence & the Machine and the deep brooding theatrics of Lykke Li, MANE has explored a new dimension of pop. Strength-to-strength, she’s an unparalleled force to be reckoned with.
On Save Yourself, her voice, while dominate and commanding, isn’t the only amazing thing on offer. Her background instrumentation is also the star of the track. Roaming, echoey guitars and cascading synth strikes brought into line with dominating percussive elements make this track as striking as ever.
According to MANE—real name Paige Court—Save Yourself is about watching someone make the same mistakes over and over again.
“You don’t want to enable them but you also don’t want them to feel abandoned. When it becomes detrimental to your well being the solution becomes pretty obvious though. Having gone through a self destructive cycle myself the song really resonates with me on both sides of the story now,” explains Court.
Come November, MANE will be heading out on a national run of dates and she’s taking Pinkish Blue along with her. You’ll want to join the MANE bandwagon sooner rather than later, as she’s been noticed by Kingswood and BIGSOUND.
