Angie McMahon / Shares Brand New Single 'Keeping Time'
Fresh from her UK live debut which included a support slot at London’s Royal Albert Hall and her own sold out London headline show, Angie McMahon has unveiled an intoxicating new single ‘Keeping Time’. The track arrives as Angie is set to make her Splendour in the Grass debut at the festival in Australia this weekend and follows the recent announcement of an Australian headline tour this September.
“This song is me yelling at myself to get off my arse and do some work... but in a loving way,” muses McMahon. “Like, you know what you want, and you can either back yourself or keep bad habits, so take note of where you’re at and use it as fuel. It’s like a love song to self-discipline. I hope others can feel some affection towards it too.”
Angie McMahon’s upcoming Australian headline tour will take in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, and Adelaide, and for all dates, McMahon will be joined by one of her favourite artists, Leif Vollebekk. The Canadian indie folk singer-songwriter will come armed with his 2017 album 'Twin Solitude’ which was shortlisted for the 2017 Polaris Music Prize and 2018 Juno Award for Adult Alternative Album of the Year.
Since the release of her breakaway debut single ‘Slow Mover’ in October 2017, Angie McMahon has performed sold-out shows across Australia and the UK and has performed high profile supports for Father John Misty, Alanis Morissette, The Shins, and fellow Australian singer-songwriters Angus and Julia Stone.
Quickly capturing the attention of audiences with her candid songwriting and raw melodies, McMahon’s debut single ‘Slow Mover’ landed at #33 on the triple j hottest 100 earlier this year, received radio play in the UK and Europe, and has clocked well over 3 million plays on Spotify. Second single ‘Missing Me’ saw her make her mark globally, charting in the Top 30 of College Radio in the USA and receiving New Music Friday playlist adds in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan and Hong Kong. The track was the #7 most played song at triple j and saw McMahon nominated for Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the Australian AIR Awards.
With her debut album now in its final stages and new music to be revealed shortly, 2018 will see McMahon launch further into the stratosphere with her most compelling expression yet.
