Irish artist Aoife McCann began her art-pop project Æ MAK in 2016 to much acclaim, landing touring spots with Django Django, Warpaint, and tUnE-yArDs, and then performing at KEXP's Iceland Airwaves Music Festival broadcast last month from Kex Hostel.
With her single "We Have It Right Here," she teams up with producer Daniel McIntyre to create a unconventional piece of synth-pop that she explains is "about appreciating the simple things, what you have in front of you making you happy." She continues via a press release:
All the anxieties and worries you have over what you think you should be, what you think the world thinks you should be disintegrating because you're there with the person you love and there are hours left until dawn breaks before those feelings come to life again.
Check out today's featured track via this eeriely-joyous video directed by McCann herself. ("I'd been watching a lot of documentaries about cults,” she explains.)
