CloudKid Presents margø - too much
The alternative Canadian singer-songwriter margø keeps reminding us of her unique vocal and sonic arrangements with her latest single ‘too much‘. Her sound could be described as a one-of-a-kind combination of indie-pop and catchy R&B-inspired vocals – remind listeners of talented artists such as Amy Winehouse or more recent Mothica, but with a more edgy and experimental vibe. Add punchy, direct sound, combing big fuzzy bass-lines with organic drums and atmospheric vocals, and you’ve got ‘too close’ treating your ears. Always in tune with strong emotions and a powerful heart, margø explains:
“too much” is about being unnecessarily hard on yourself. Around the time I wrote this song I was really struggling with social media – and the way it made me compare my self-image and my life to the perfectly curated lives of others. I realized that I was overthinking and putting too much pressure on myself to achieve an impossible standard that social media promotes. This song is a reminder that it’s okay to have imperfections, it’s normal to not always have it all together, and most importantly – a reminder to be kind to yourself”
