Incoming: New York-based singer-songwriter Mae Krell with (as she calls it), some new “sad girl indie music.” Her new single “Tooth Fairy,” is a previously unreleased track from her first EP, Imposter Syndrome, which was released earlier this year.
“Tooth Fairy” is an introspective song about coming to the realization that you may be better off without someone who you previously thought was indispensable.
“I wrote it after I found out that someone who used to be my best friend moved to the city where I grew up. It felt like tearing open an old wound that I didn’t know I had, and also put me in a spot to question: if the chance were to arise, would I want to give them a second chance? That’s something I’m still trying to figure out.”
The 23-year-old writes intimate reflections that confront past trauma, self-love and personal truths. Singer-songwriters that have influenced her folk-pop style include Bob Dylan, Phoebe Bridgers and Gregory Alan Isakov.
Mae Krell is currently on tour with SoFar Sounds for a series of shows across the US and Canada.
