Maggy France is moniker of Montreal resident Emma Austin who crafts dreamy, melancholic lo-fi indie, with utterly beguiling results.
The spellbinding nature of her music is immediately apparent, even with a cursory listen to France’s debut, self-titled EP was released in 2016. Latest single ‘Woman’ gently bobs along a steady waltzing beat with lo-fi and garage tones joining a beautifully hazy guitar-jangle. It manages to be both dreamy and melancholic at the same time, as Austin’s tender vocal exudes a sense of fragility, heartache and loss. It is a sweetly hypnotic song, tiptoeing the listener delicately into a transfixing haze. A beguiling introduction to the delectable talents of Maggy France.
