Creating a wistful, reflective soundscape – 21-year old Amsterdam-based newcomer Mazey Haze has made her debut with 'Sad Lonely Groove'.

The dream-pop number is a blissful introduction to Nadine Appeldoorn's songwriting. As she reflects on a period of time when her life felt still, Nadine's funk-led bass lines and twinkling synths sits nearly in between the likes of Alvvays and Clairo – soft and endearing while brimming authentic honesty.

"The song is about me feeling the lowest and loneliest I’ve ever felt in my life." tells Mazey Haze. "I hadn’t built lots of friend relationships yet and I forced myself to be alone with myself. It’s about missing the guy I thought I was in love with. It’s a stream of thoughts that were circling around in my head all the time. It was the first time that I realized I wasn’t able to be happy by myself and was very dependent in the past relationship. Suddenly I had to meet and get to know myself, something I had never done before. When I wrote this song I was still running away from it all."
