Maiah Manser’s new single “Second Skin” is a noir-pop powerhouse. The boldly creative and unique vocal techniques serve as the song's tonal hook, dragging you through waves of airy noise. Maiah’s bluesy vocals overlay the subtlest of palm-muted guitar accompaniments, all the way padded with spiky square wave synth textures.
Maiah says about the song, "Taking many inspirations from the novel Dracula, I explored the meaning of what it is to have a second skin in this yearning love song. Whether this defines emotional armour or making one stronger, a second skin is a part of every human process".
But songwriting isn't Manser’s only talent; it seems she also has an aptitude when selecting producers for remix duties. Finding Swiss producer Wassily was nothing short of a masterstroke. Wassily understands the song’s structure and its strengths adding his dreamy jazz and funk beats to build on the original.
