We pride ourselves in showing you new, trending, and (honestly) just really good music. mazie is one such artist that we'd love for you to flaunt to your friends, you little A&R king/queen.
Grace Christian, aka mazie, has the bedroom pop sad-lyrics-but-happy-vibe we all love, alongside the personality of our favorite introverted-extroverted bestie. "no friends" is the debut single for mazie and the relatable title speaks for itself, especially in a time when we're all out here dealing with the feeling that we have no friends. The 20-year-old Baltimore native shares these feelings in her self-referential lyrics, singing, "Like I said in the chorus / My life is so boring and so unimportant / Guess I'll call my Mom again cause / I don't have no friends / I don't care I'm not upset / I admit that I'm a mess,"
With the upbeat tempo and the high-pitched laugh complimenting her vocals, we cannot tell if this loneliness even phases mazie, an introverted-extrovert at their truest form. mazie spoke further on her debut single, sharing,
“Elie [Rizk] and I made this song because college can be a really isolating time when you're pursuing something outside of your education (music). Even though sometimes I do feel like I have no friends, I also can't take myself seriously enough to write a song that doesn't make fun of how I'm feeling. I really love to be self-deprecating and 'no friends’ really embodies how I feel being a social (yet somehow) lonely person.”
Christian finds inspiration from Gwen Stefani and her early 2000's DIY fashion ventures. The young artist can also recite the alphabet blindfolded, ran a semi-successful 1D fan account from the years of 2012-2014, and has a religious Denny's order that consists of: Everyday Value Slam - no meat, extra potatoes, eggs over-easy. We cannot help but stan her music, vision, and "potatoes over meat" mentality.
