Maggie Lindemann brings Egoists back down to earth with new single, “You’re Not.”

An alternative scenario has taken shape Maggie Lindemann He is a fearless artist today. “I love everything about it. I think the community of people and what it stands for and just the overall vibe, honestly. The aesthetic, the music…I really love everything about it. It’s just crazy, because I’m into alternative music – pop punk. , rock, grew up listening to all that stuff. So it was just a dream for me to be embraced by all of that and be able to make music in the genre,” he says. He’s been flying especially high lately and the opportunity to collaborate with Kailyn Quinn on his latest track. Got, “How could you do this to me?” “It was definitely one of the craziest moments of my career. I look up to Kailyn forever. Sleeping With Sirens is my favorite band. So yeah, it was crazy.” Maggie is a fierce trailblazer in a genre that ignores women’s contributions. “Some of my favorite artists in the alternative scene are Gwen Stefani and Amy Lee and Garbage and all these people who are women in bands. I don’t know why we So overlooked, but we’ve had such an impact on the scene. Women have had such a big impact. I don’t know why we’re still overlooked. I guess it’s seen as more of a masculine genre. There are so many amazing alternative artists who have the same amount of recognition. Worthy, if not. It’s definitely weird.”

His latest single, “You’re Not Special,” addresses those uniquely annoying people in your life who falsely assume they live in your mind rent-free. “I’m sure ‘You’re Special’ is the last song I wrote on the album. We needed one more. I went in with the intention of making a song that sounded exactly like that and then we got it, which was a really crazy thing because it doesn’t always happen like that. It’s about that person in your life who constantly annoys you, but they think they’ve made a big impact on you and they’re really not that special. They think they are, but you don’t really think much of them. It’s the person who thinks they’re under your skin. They think they annoy you and annoy you and whatever. And you kind of just brush them off. They’re not really that special.” Writing songs is a symbol of emotional catharsis for Maggie. “Music is just my therapy. I have to figure things out to move forward in life. I don’t really go to therapy, so writing is my therapy. To move forward from a situation. I have to write about that. So I write everything. In my sessions, I usually work with the same group of people who know me really well. I trust them. I always feel safe to be very vulnerable and talk about real things that I am. Actually going to get the music I write. I think the more vulnerable you are and the deeper you get, the more relatable it is.”

Maggie’s upcoming debut album, Soccer Punch, as it sounds is meant to be scolded. “It’s definitely a complete experience. Because I said so Soccer Punch Because while making the album, I felt that I had been hit by many unexpected injuries and changes in my life. Throughout the album, you hear about all these different things I’m going through. Someone not being special to me, someone being too special to me, someone trying to tear me down, feeling lonely in a relationship, loving someone you’re not related to, these are all different things. It’s a journey through the last year and a half of my life.” to “Stop me!” Depicting the daydream/nightmare dichotomy of addiction, “How Can You Do This to Me” is a breathless ode to unhealthy codependency, a drive for dominance that runs through the album’s bloodstream. “Whether someone else is in control of you or not really in control of yourself, power and control are common themes in several of my songs.”

Horror is the central motivation Soccer Punch, down to the smallest stylistic details. “For the album rollout, we made it Website Where you can do puzzles and unlock cover art and song titles. It was inspired by Super the saw And the uterus And even my album is in font matrix iThis inspired music video [for ‘you’re not special’] is inspired by Proof of death by Quentin Tarantino. I’m really inspired by horror movies and just movies in general.” If it involves female sexual misconduct, Maggie is all about it. “That’s what. Soccer Punch A movie reference. Sucker punch This really crazy movie about this girl who is kept at home and likes to fight and do all this crazy shit. It’s about super women and it’s so empowering. The cast is all female. It’s really sick.”

Soccer Punch Represents the culmination of countless trials and tribulations. “I’m really excited. I feel like I’ve worked with it for so long that now I’m like, ‘I want to get this out.’ It’s less nerves now and more, ‘Let’s figure it out.’ I’m really proud of it. It took me the last year and a half to write it. I’m honestly ready to move on to the next chapter and start my next album. I like to move fast. I’m just ready for it to come out already. I’m tired of waiting!” He will be staging two pop-ups shows – one on October 15 at Moroccan Lounge in LA and the other on October 19 at The Mercury Lounge in New York City. “We’re doing a few pop-up shows in LA and New York Soccer Punch. I did my own little popup, but years and years and years ago. This will be my first real thing where I’m doing a body job and I think it’s super for me. I’m really excited to do it. Hopefully after this, I’ll be able to do a tour.” Her career is just starting to find its wings. Maggie is the alternate Athena we’ve been waiting for. Soccer Punch Drops on September 16.
