Taking influences from icons such as Janet Jackson and George Michael, George Maple’s newest track, “Kryptonite”, is an instant dancefloor filler. The Ozzie-born songwriter and producer has created a glimmering disco anthem rife with electronic hooks and stunning vocals. Talking about the track, Maple tells us, “I wanted this song to be free, uninhibited, fun, to embrace community, your own sexuality, love, lust, your own “vices” and most of all each other. Everyone has their Kryptonite, their weaknesses, we are all human. It’s that moment at 3am where your feet hurt, you’ve been dancing and singing half the words to old George Michael and you turn to your friends and say “I love you” nothing else matters at that moment. Sometimes we forget to just have fun and embrace what we have, to be kind to one another, accept each other, love and celebrate our differences.”
Taken from her debut album, which will be out via Virgin EMI later this year, the track follows on from 2014’s incredible debut EP “Vacant Space” and 2015’s singles “Sticks and Horses”, “Buried” and “Lover” and brilliant collab with What So Not. Now gearing up for a string of live dates, including Birthdays on 18th May and The Great Escape Festival, 2017 is set to be Maple’s year. So keep your eyes, and ears, peeled.
