Maddy O’Neal is one artist that has been on our radar here at CE for some time. The Denver local has recently catapulted herself back into the limelight a recent string of releases from her newest EP, The Rush. First, with an effervescent collaboration with indie-pop trio HU:MAN on “Take It Slow,” and now with a high-powered single alongside Big Gigantic’s Dominic Lalli.
The aptly-titled track, “After Glow,” is a brightly shining tune upon which the two future funk/electro-soul artists showcase their glistening chemistry and knack for punchy, upbeat sound designs. Lalli’s sax lines blend effortlessly with O’ Neal’s light-hearted vocals and robust bass lines for a refreshingly vibrant track with maximum groove appeal.
The track is a standout on the latter’s new 5-track EP, The Rush, which boasts three more newly released collaborations with rapper Mandy Groves, Ashley Niven, and Yasi. The underlying theme of the short player is fun, funky, dance-inducing numbers, all held together by collaborative, vocally-led originals.
