Maddy Storm's 'Last Halloween': A Soul-Stirring Anthem You Need to Hear

From the pulsating heart of Manchester's music scene, I've stumbled upon an artist who's redefining the rules of the pop game. Let me introduce you to Maddy Storm and her self-produced single, "Last Halloween." This isn't just another track; it's an audacious statement, a raw revelation, and let's face it, an anthem for anyone grappling with the chaos of their 20s and the labyrinth of mental health.

I was instantly gripped by the genre-blurring brilliance of "Last Halloween." Imagine a world where hyper-pop collides with something much grittier, almost industrial in sound. The haunting synth hooks you in from the get go, and then you find yourself entangled in a web of trap loops which are accented by an almost honky-tonk industrial infused bassline. The layers in this track are just magical, they're so Halloween fitting it's scary. Emotional, echoing the complexity of modern life and relationships, the lyrics are eerily spooky too.

Maddy Storm isn't just making music; she's making catharses, laying her vulnerabilities bare for the world to see. She calls it '3 am notes from a people pleaser,' but to me, it's a manifesto for growth, a testament to the transformative power of self-reflection and execution through music.

Now, I've been around the block with artists claiming critical acclaim. But Maddy Storm's accolades are well-deserved. Her debut EP, 'Forced Extrovert,' not only earned her Spotify Editorial playlist spots but a feature as the record of the week on BBC Introducing. However, "Last Halloween" feels like a pivotal moment, a crystallisation of her unique contribution to music, especially as a woman in a male-dominated production landscape.

So, should you listen to "Last Halloween"? Scratch that question. This is a track you need to experience. In a landscape cluttered with artifice, Maddy Storm offers a dose of brutal authenticity. She's not just reflecting the corners of her soul but she's also holding up a mirror to us all. Chilling.
