London-based artist MAGUIRE reveals her debut track; the dreamy and ethereal strains of ‘Behind The Screen’. The song begins with a simple piano refrain, gradually building and layering syncopated jazz rhythms with MAGUIRE’s haunting vocals, backed by a crescendo of flugelhorn harmony.
MAGUIRE said: “‘Behind The Screen’ asks who we are behind the black mirror of our online selves. It is an attempt to articulate the virtual dance we partake in; endlessly observing one another and being observed from afar. Instead it urges for connection in the physical realm beyond the shadow world of technology.”
The classically trained multi-instrumentalist Gillian Maguire has been touring since the age of 16, and recently supported Ry X on his UK tour dates. As well as making her solo music, she is one half of the ambient arthouse electronic project ‘Awkward Moments’ along with DJ/Producer Mimi Xu. The collective debuted their most recent project at Houghton Festival in 2018.
‘Behind The Screen’ is produced by Steph Marziano, and is the first track to be taken from MAGUIRE’s forthcoming debut EP. She is also currently in the studio with producer Liam Howe (FKA Twigs, Lana Del Rey), working on further future releases.
