Maya Amolo Debuts Her Stirring EP “Leave Me At The Pregame"
Nairobi based R&B singer, Maya Amolo continues to reach greater heights with the premiere of her debut EP “Leave Me At The Pregame”.
Leave me at the pregame is a 7-track EP in which Maya manages to put all the thoughts and feelings that she was experiencing and compares them to going to a club, when things end up going south wishing that you had just stayed at the pregame. Maya explains,
"You ever get to a party and you’re just like, “damn. I should have stayed my ass at the pregame”. I can’t find my friends, I’m too drunk, someone is fighting, someone is crying, I’m just plagued by all the things that I’ve been putting off and all the thoughts resurface when I’m alone, in a crowd, at the club, away from the warmness and intimacy of the pregame."
Maya takes us on her intimate journey to self healing where her exquisite penmanship explores the themes of self-sabotage, self-realization, toxicity, love and depression as she tries to tackle her daily experience.The constant regression to what hurt you despite knowing that you won’t progress is evident in “Puddles” as she says “Go back to playing in puddles, f*** around get too deep.”
The warping emotions that come with living away from your hometown regarding the feelings of safety are felt in “Lush Green” paired with the feelings of depression where she was at a super low point urging herself to trust the process in a track titled “Crashing”.
Using her soft delivery of raspy vocals and hard hitting baselines the singer delves into the concept of self realization and growth after escaping the cycles of the bad relationship in “Grwth” to the acceptance of the hard hitting reality that there is a place and time for everything which she depicts in “Place and Time”.
Maya Amolo has caught the attention of many with her hypnotic melodies and soulful vocals and continues to quickly amass a listenership with this emotionally felt piece of work .
Leave Me At The Pregame is available for streaming and downloads on all major digital platforms.
