MADELINE. Strikes a Chord with ‘still that girl’

Today, London-based New Zealand songstress MADELINE. returns with her latest track ‘still that girl’, the first in a series of singles set for release in 2024.

still that girl’ is a heartfelt exploration of love, loss, and the bittersweet dance of nostalgia. With poignant lyrics and a captivating melody, MADELINE. invites listeners to reflect on the complexities of relationships and the passage of time.

The song builds from a soft piano and plucked guitar in the verse into an upbeat banger that will make listeners want to get up and dance.

The song was written by MADELINE. and produced by Jonny Avery in Wellington before MADELINE. crossed the world to London.

Reflecting on the track, MADELINE. says “I wanted to write a song that celebrated a relationship, even though it ended. The lyric ‘am I still that girl to you?’ highlights the battle of mourning a relationship, the self-growth from it & the hope this person won’t forget the version of me I was when we were together.”

She adds “The phrase ‘dancing on the line’ refers to two people that are living in the moment and having fun. However they are also trying to make a relationship with a lot of history, distance and idealism work for day-to-day life. It’s the idea that sometimes it’s easier to stay in that romanticised place, rather than crossing the line into reality.”

MADELINE.’s unwavering passion for music shines through in every note, reflecting her dedication to her craft and her commitment to creating music that resonates with listeners. Drawing inspiration from her own experiences and emotions, Madeline delivers a performance that is both authentic and energetic.

The songs come accompanied by a music video director by Victoria Ellison and Madeline Berry.
