- Folk-pop artist Mabes releases new single “Too Young To Love.”
British folk-pop artist Mabes has dropped the tender single “Too Young To Love” via Amuse / The Other Songs.
The song details the essence of young love and its highs and lows. While Mabes creates an inviting atmosphere for the listener with her warm harmonies and signature acoustic guitar melodies, her lyrics mirror a personal discourse full of uncertainty.
“Too Young To Love” follows the singer’s debut album Wait & See in 2019 and her latest EP Keeping The Noise Down released this past May. The EP, written partly in Nashville last year, is a pure reflection of her interest in Americana, country, and folk music and a nod to the community she fell in love with during her time there. Each song on the EP is outfitted with poignant lyrics, rooted in folk sensibilities and wrapped with impeccable sincerity.
The title track was co-written with Jonny Latimer (Ellie Goulding, Rag ‘N’ Bone Man) and bubbles with pop potential as Mabes opens a dialogue about social anxiety over irresistible electronics. The second track, “Stuck in the Rain,” was co-written with Dan McDougall (Noel Gallagher) and tells a whimsical tale of hope and endurance. The guitar-heavy “Slow Drowning” and “Might As Well” (an infectious, mid-tempo slow-burner, featuring a breezy, anthemic chorus and luscious horns that was co-written with Quarry) complete the body of work. The EP visual, which illuminates Mabes’ affinity for the ‘70s, transforms all four songs into one collective piece of art representative of her teenage years and is a glimpse of her creative prowess.
Her sound is described as “honest” with “a country twang influenced by pop,” Mabes began playing the guitar at the age of 15 and learned to write as her fascination for British act Laura Marling’s folk-poetry developed. The singer has accumulated 1 million listeners on Spotify with collective streams across platforms surpassing 25 million.
“Too Young To Love” is now available on music streaming platforms.
