NEON OUT NOW!
DATES FOR UPCOMING SHOWS WILL BE ONLINE SOON.
After the successful release of her debut single ‘Runner’, Dutch artist MADOUX is ready to release her second single ‘Neon’. In ‘Neon’ MADOUX talks about being in a dark place and feeling lost and lonely in a society that seems to be in an endless rush. Neon is about acknowledging that all we ever do is hold on and tell others were fine when we’re not. Even when everything seems to grow darker day by day, there is always light at the end of the tunnel, even if it’s just a flicker.
A singer/songwriter who crafts dark and dreamy alt-pop songs, MADOUX is making her debut in 2020 with a first single titled “Runner”. Inspired by Ane Brun, Oscar and the Wolf, Alanis Morissette and Warhaus, MADOUX started writing songs in her teenage bedroom after picking up the old, classical guitar her grandfather had left her. She started writing on a range of subjects, from her parent’s heartbreaking divorce to the ups and downs of teenage love affairs – finding solace in the music and laying bare her inner world for the first time.
She went off to study music at the renowned Rock Academy in the city of Tilburg, the Netherlands, where she deepened her love for indie music, songwriting and singing. She’d grown up in a household full of music, her father a big vinyl collector of bands such as Talking Heads, Fleetwood Mac, and the Beatles, her mum a former singer and big fan of David Bowie – who also introduced her to a range of female fronted acts such as Alanis Morissette and Skunk Anansie. However it was Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here” that turned her life around by striking a chord so deep that she realized music would be at the heart of her life moving forward.
In 2018 she took some of her self-recorded demos to Hamburg-born, Amsterdam-based producer Benjamin Rheinlander (Celine Cairo, Dave Buddha) and together they started working diligently on the MADOUX sound – a moody mix of dreamy acoustic instruments, deep electronica and analog synths layered with her distinctively ethereal, spellbinding vocals. Signed to Amsterdam boutique label IVY Records Amsterdam, MADOUX is ready to enter the scene with her carefully crafted sound and intriguing live act in 2020.
