On the 30th of July Dutch alt-pop artist MADOUX is presenting her’ Leave me Blind’ debut EP: an escapade that is both lush and hypnotising and takes you to discover light and darkness and every shade in between.
With a moody mix of dreamy acoustic instruments, deep electronica and analog synths layered with her ethereal and spellbinding voice she showcases her music in a compelling and mesmerising electro-pop EP.
With Wildfire as occlusion of her very first body of work, she blazes a trail towards self-awareness, intuition and feminine strength. in Wildfire she talks about setting fire to all of the things that her former self would do; overthinking, being in your head all the time, feeling sad and pleasing others. Wildfire is about a brand new start; leaving the past behind and living in this very moment. Standing in your power and believing in yourself; it’s time to ‘burn up the gloom’. Wildfire is a surprising addition to the songs on the EP in a way that it contains a lot more lush vocal harmonies and aquatic analog synth layers that build up to a minimal and almost hypnotic outro that equally measures hope and deliverance.
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.
