After the success of her debut single How He Looks At Her which was just released five weeks ago, indie pop artist Maya Ghose drops her next release I Don’t Want This. With a memorable melody and a relevant message, I Don’t Want This is currently available on all digital platforms including Spotify, Apple Music, and more.
The song opens with Maya’s smooth and sultry lead vocal layered with rich harmonies, and supported by Maya’s signature grungy guitar vamp. The song’s message is a universal one, but comes from personal experience. “For anyone that has ever felt unheard or has felt that boundaries have been pushed, this song is for you,” says Maya.
Maya also credits her brother, producer and engineer, Brayden Ghose for creating the sonic landscape that drove the message she wanted to deliver. “My brother has skills,” says Maya rather succinctly. The final production highlights a funky rhythm section, pulsing rhythm guitar, but with just enough space to allow the impact of the lyrics to shine through.
The standout 17-year-old young woman is getting some buzz on the indie music scene with her phenomenal vocal control throughout her music. Singing in her lower range with raspy undertones and effortlessly switching to a sweet falsetto, her sultry voice sets the mood for a bohemian presence.
