Meg Mac’s music carries a soulful intensity. Each song is marked by her impressive force of character, imposing a kind of direct communication between this Australian artist and the listener. In new single ‘On Your Mind’ this force is perhaps embodied purest - the work of a radiant voice atop a hypnotic slow-burner that leaves a lasting impact. Down-tempo and down-beat, Meg Mac seems to use this space to assert her own stylish approach to song writing. Neo-soul marked with undeniable swagger, ‘On Your Mind’ is reminiscent of Portishead in its emotional allure, with production team The Donuts – whose credits include H.E.R. and Kendrick Lamar, amongst others – adding a distinct and refreshing twist. A thrilling and transformative single, ‘On Your Mind’ is part of Meg Mac’s irresistible rise. Her previous cut ‘Is It Worth Being Sad’ immediately became the most-played song on Triple J and received rave reviews from media around the world with Rolling Stone calling it “one of the most powerful and arresting performances of her career to date” and Women In Pop stating “Mac sounding more assured and confident than ever and her upcoming music in 2022 is destined to be her best yet”. The songs remain her driving force, however, and ‘On Your Mind’ burns brightest of all. Paired with a divine live video recorded in Golden Retriever studio, this majestic moment could rank as the crowning point of Meg Mac’s musicality, and an exciting taste of more surprising music to come. News of the release is spearheaded by announcement of Meg’s return to the stage for the first time in 2 years, with a national headline tour hitting 5 capital cities set for May/June. *$1 from every ticket sold is being donated to GIVIT to support communities impacted by the NSW and QLD floods.
