Meg Mac – MEGMAC EP Review

MegMac_HiResPressShot_August2014She’s already garnered attention across Australia with the belting ballad ‘Roll Up Your Sleeves’, but now Meg Mac is set to warm ears once more with the release of her debut EP ‘MEGMAC’ out September 12.

Meg Mac has been kicking around the local scene for a while, but her delay in producing an EP has really paid off, with ‘MEGMAC’ being one of the strongest debut EPs I have heard in a while. Many artists have a strong voice, but Meg Mac has combined her powerful stirring vocals with an intricate arrangement of instruments and flawless production to create a sound that is not only attention grabbing, but so god damn enjoyable.

There is something so universally accessible about the simplistic vocal dominant, beat laden EP Meg has produced. It is polite, intelligent and has that gritty dark element that just draws your ears towards wanting more.’Roll Up Your Sleeves’ is a rightful standout, and is deservedly sitting at number 3 on the indie charts, but ‘Known Better’ and ‘Every Lie’ are not far behind.  Its the type of record you can listen to with your mother, without detracting from its coolness in any way – the true sign of an EP that is not going to fade from your collection quickly.
