Experimental female pop ambassador Madeline has been serving up delectably strange and empowered media since she arrived on the scene in 2017. It’s only fitting that, when attempting to appropriate the work of another artist, she decided to cover the fairy godmother of Alterna-Pop, Bjork, who wrote “Birthday” in her artistic infancy as a member of The Sugarcubes.
The new video boasts a joyful, simple, uncluttered vibe which is exactly what Madeline intended. “It’s a beautiful ode to the innocence of a young girl, and the beauty of a life. Sometimes I need to remember myself as a little kid. It helps me to have more self love and compassion when my anxiety starts to take over,” she asserts. Indeed, the unbridled performance coupled with the songs lighthearted vibe makes for a deeply therapeutic experience, even if it’s not your birthday, per se.
“Birthday” is lifted from her new EP, Then Her Head Fell Off, which is Madeline’s most left field project to date – brimming with weird, wild and unmistakably original songs.
