SONG PICK: Maisyn – Pool Party
Los Angeles-based songwriter, singer, and guitarist Maisyn writes songs that are rooted in personal experiences and reflections, yet they certainly resonate with a great many people. Her latest single “Pool Party,” is the third one ahead of her upcoming EP. For “Pool Party,” Jessi Mason aka Maisyn teamed up with engineer/producer Joey Messina-Doerning (HAIM, Women in Music Pt. III), and the result is a blissfully bright and tender song about coming to terms with one’s own body and body image.
The shining star in this production though are Maisyn’s utterly gorgeous vocals, which flow effortlessly throughout “Pool Party.” Asked about “Pool Party,” Maisyn says:
I gave myself permission to reach for the darkest places, and I wound up with a song about the subtle invasiveness and shame of body dysmorphia. Once I started actually speaking to my experience the song took shape effortlessly.
The seemingly effortless production is almost tangible. What an affirmative and beautifully flowing track! Listen to “Pool Party,” our Song Pick of the Day:
