MAAD’s “New Religion” exists at the nexus of a number of styles, as MAAD’s vocals pull from the mid-oughts R&B style and the bass/keys backing beat interacts with the thick beats of modern EDM. The light, airy sound of MAAD’s vocals work perfectly with the heavier bass elements. The extended synth solo that occurs at the 2:15 mark provides just enough in the way of variation to refresh fans and keep the singing along until New Religion finishes up. Confident, establishing a unique sound as she draws upon a storied musical traditions, MAAD is an artist that we will be hearing more from in the future.
