Angie McMahon is an Australian musician who loves honest songwriting and romantic melodies, with songs that ruminate on life, love and takeaway food. Angie loves to write and perform across the full dynamic spectrum, shifting between gravelly intimacy and pounding rock.

One of the standout discoveries at this past South By Southwest, was Australian artist Angie McMahon has now released her debut LP on Dual Tone Records, a partnership she announced during the festival where she was awarded the Grulke Prize for Best Developing International Act. Considering she has only released five or six tracks for us to spin incessantly since then (and they are, by all means, each incredible) we’ve been ready for this album since first hearing McMahon’s guitar fill the vaulted ceilings of a church in Austin. 

McMahon’s gorgeous vocals range over somber folk melodies, evoking passionate emotions in anyone within earshot. Look no further than the stunning energy of “Keeping Time” for the essence of one of the finest vocalists and songwriters we’ve had the pleasure of discovering this year.

The Maes Trio is a Melbourne-based band of three young musicians fast making a name for themselves in the Australian music scene.

Angie McMahon‘s songs were written for live performances. Her captivating presence and soulful, warm vocals transfixes the audience. She writes lyrics that capture life experiences in her own unique way.

Her debut single ‘Slow Mover’ is a song that etched itself into the back of my mind after first hearing it live. Weeks later it would randomly pop into the forefront of my mind. Maybe it’s the way the song slowly builds, or that infectious chorus, or the fried chicken lyric. Probably best if you just hit play.

‘Slow Mover’ is a compelling introduction to what this young singer-songwriter is capable of.
