Mayfly. A symbol of all that is ephemeral. An incarnation reminding us of the importance of living while remaining in tune with our emotions and experiences. The female duo, made up of Charlie and Emma, holds both a name and an art that inspire seizing the moment and following instinct. Following the release of four singles in 2022 –BLACK WATER, PASSENGER SEAT, PRETTY ENDING and ALL DREAMS FADE- Mayfly presents HIDEAWAY Vol.I, an imposing seven-track EP under the Canadian label Duprince.
The two 22-year-old singer-songwriters are based in Montreal and self-produce their music at home. Their sound is a captivating one, allowing you to fully escape into another reality. They also bring to their project a strong multidimensional vision, wrapping their songs in a fascinating visual aesthetic. They’ve notably collaborated with director Adrian Villagomez (Denzel Curry, Apashe, Jean-Michel Blais…) for the production of the videos accompanying BLACK WATER, PASSENGER SEAT and ALL DREAMS FADE.
Their first EP, titled ESSENCE (2021), was able to mesmerize with its musical universe imbued with melancholy and vulnerability, while being wonderfully carried by the unison of their voices. With HIDEAWAY Vol.I, the duo abandons its chrysalis for a darker sound, ingrained with electro-pop tones and magnetic arrangements. Charlie and Emma remain faithful to the touching vulnerability that runs through their captivating voices, this time taking us deeper into reverie, combining raw and organic textures with dancing and liberating rhythms. An intoxicating contrast between the delicate and the obscure.
