Lindsay Mac Remember

Cambridge, Massachusetts is harboring a rogue folk pop songstress. Lindsay Mac is a classically-trained cellist turned dance pop artist with the release of “Remember,” a lead single from her upcoming album Animal Again. The result of her freedom from being widely known as a folk artist with this uptempo single is a marked shift to a sound that is highly energetic and audibly effortless.

I will admit to being slightly skeptical when I see the words “dance pop”; so many artists have a tendency to try just a little too hard to craft a “hit” along the lines of Ryan Tedder or Taylor Swift. Those artists are wildly successful because they’re solid songwriters - they know their way around a good hook, a melodic pop sensibility that requires having a keen sense of simple but engaging lyricism. Beneath any really good pop song is a great melody, and focused musicianship. Lindsay Mac not only fits this bill, but she excels with an ease that makes it difficult not to stand up and move to the beat (or at least put on a pretty mean chair-dancing display).

“Remember” is a radio-ready, dancefloor-bumping hit in the making. Mac’s vocal performance is breezy and sweet with an edge that boosts an already effervescent melody. It’s fun, it’s uncomplicated and you’ll be wearing a smile by the time it’s over (that is, unless you hit repeat after repeat after repeat to keep your groove going). This is how pop music is supposed to make you feel, just a little bit better about life…with a dance break.
