Mazey Haze takes influence from French New Wave cinema and 60s psych on compelling new single ‘The Weight of the Weekend’

Indie-rock rising talent Mazey Haze returns with new single ‘The Weight of the Weekend’ – the first new music to be heard since her breakthrough debut EP Always Dancing.

Toning down the more ethereal, synthetic textures present on her debut, Mazey Haze’s new material finds her rooting herself to the earth, together with a little less perfectionism. Organic, acoustic sounds, her love of French New Wave cinema, Italian film scores and 60s psych-rock informs the vein of nostalgia that runs through it, finding its way back to a distant world.

Wreathed in light, cinematic with its gong-like percussion, new single ‘The Weight of the Weekend’ traces the difficult terrain of her childhood. “It’s sensitive for me, so it was a scary song to release,” she shares.

Speaking more on the lyrical inspiration of ‘The Weight of the Weekend’, Mazey Haze added: “This song is about me trying to figure out for myself how to connect with people and wanting to get rid of the part of me that holds me back from being free. Thinking about my childhood, myself and people in general. I find it hard to connect with myself and others, want to know why and how to get better. In this song you could say I’m talking to myself, to certain people around me and to the particular voice in my head that refuses to give me real peace and pride in anything I do.”
