Madeline Juno – ‘Grund genug’
Back in 2014 a young Madeline Juno participated in Unser Song für Dänemark. She came with the emotional drum kick anthem ‘Like Lovers Do’. The song had transcended the German selection process and became the soundtrack for the film Pompeii. Unfortunately the song failed to progress to the second round of voting. However that hasn’t stopped Madeline from continuing her underground success releasing two further albums, Salvation and DNA. Next month will see the release of her fourth studio album Was Bleibt.
Already Madeline has released ‘Automatisch‘ and now she has followed it up with ‘Grund genug’ for New Music Friday. Still with her angelic tone that flows softly in the German language ‘Reason Enough’ in English continues to show her music craft and writing beyond her years. The melancholic electronic guitar beats wrap around a story of pain and heartbreak. Whether in life or love, Madeline is wanting to be free of a situation of lost trust. “Waste someone else and cry if you miss me. No reason to be here anymore is reason enough to go. Now let the time heal me.”
That was the best of New Music Friday this week. Which are your favourites? Have we missed anything? We may include it in a future week! Let us know in the comments and on social media @ESCXTRA
