Rising Australian artist MAY-A has dropped her new single, Your Funeral. The self-deprecating cut finds the singer leaning into more alt-pop based sonics, as she unpacks her own relationship habits with satirical lyricism flowing above a driving beat.
“Your Funeral is about seeking out the things you know are bad for you because you’re a little bit of a sadist,” says MAY-A. “It’s playing devil's advocate. It’s a self-deprecating, slightly satirical comment on not being able to accept the love people want to give you. Hurting people by leaving because you’re terrified of them leaving first. The bridge is the core of the song in my eyes. It all feels like a bit of a joke until you get to the middle eight, where it strips down and the bullshit is cut for a second, acknowledging that ‘If you really think that we’re suitable, then that’s your funeral.’”
The track follows up the release of Sweat You Out My System, which arrived off the back of an incredible year for the Australian artist, which kicked off with the release of her ARIA nominated collaboration with Flume, Say Nothing. MAY-A went on to tour North America and Australia with Flume, appearing alongside him at festivals including Coachella and Governors Ball. She capped off the year supporting 5 Seconds of Summer on their Australian headline tour, before taking to the stage at Falls Festival and Lost Paradise.
Your Funeral is out now!
