Emerging Dutch R&B singer/ songwriter Maya Mae shares her debut single “Leave Me Alone” alongside its video. The song is her first as a solo act and helps introduce her commanding sultry vocals to the rest of the world. As a debut single, “Leave Me Alone” is as expressive as they come and Mae leaves nothing to chance as she delivers a powerful vocal performance that truly displays her range and eclectic style. She makes use of the mellow, ethereal backdrop and brings the listener closer to her thoughts with an emotive allure and a melody that will stick in your ears for a while.
The visuals are self-directed with the help of Zino de Groot as the main DP and editor. Mae knows exactly wants she wants and brings her creative powers to the screen with the awesome set pieces, costumes, and expressive choreography. Shot in a theatre, Mae goes for a dark and ominous vibe and focuses on a lot of solo shots to drive home the theme of the song. It’s not a coincidence that she is hands-on with the visual but rather it stems from her passion for film and directing.
