In The Spotlight

Maja – “Not Picking Up”

Born in Serbia as Maja Puseljic, this Australian-based singer and songwriter completed her study of music composition and piano at the University of Queensland in 2014. Two years later she was touring the East Coast with her band. Inspired by Otis Redding, Laura Marling and Fiona Apple, she’s created a nostalgic sound, echoing soul, blues and folk. She debuted with “The Dreamer” in 2016.

Written about a female friend who was neglecting their friendship, her new single adds a retro-pop sound to her auditory bow. Painting a neon colored canvas with a sonic 80s palette, it’s the passionate rhythm, mellow synths and flavorful guitars that capture a melancholy of yesteryear. And with her captivating vocals reaching into your heart, this luscious jam is relatable, heartfelt and mesmerizing.
