Indie-rock rising talent Mazey Haze has announced her new EP Back to the Start will be released on April 7, 2023 via LUSTRE. The EP announcement coincides with the release of its second single ‘I Feel Like a Child’, quickly following a string of European tour dates supporting Paolo Nutini and Feng Suave.
On new single ‘I Feel Like a Child’, with its whimsical, bossa nova flavour and euphoric choruses, Mazey Haze finds release in accepting that it’s okay not to be on the same page as someone else. The song was written as she looked out her bedroom window… “The trees are really pretty in the summer, and you can see the sunshine and all the leaves moving”, she recalls. The opening verse follows her trying to articulate the scene through her own lens, finding delight in mundanity, just like a child would. “The song is about the fact that everyone has their own perception, and that’s fine. There’s no right or wrong. There’s no truth. But what’s important is keeping in touch with your imagination.”
Speaking more on the lyrical inspiration of “I Feel Like a Child”, Mazey Haze said: “‘I Feel Like a Child’ is a song about beautiful mundanity in comparison to superficial humanity. I think these two have an amazing contrast next to each other and they’re two things that have always fascinated me. I want to try and understand why I feel so wonderful and calm when I’m alone looking at some birds in the sky, leafy trees or listening to classical music. And why I feel overwhelmed and confused by so many people (including myself) so much. But mostly, I’ve figured out that there’s no sense in thinking about these things, but more so to act upon it and feel it.”
