Maie Shares New Single ‘Kosmo’

Chinese virtual being and artist Maie has just shared her brand new single Kosmo, which mirrors the next phase in her evolution, with an even more developed sound. 
Written and produced by Pete Nappi (UPSHAL, Anne-Maie, Little Mix, Madison Beer), Kosmo is a captivating piece of electro-pop music with gritty edge to it that I find quite captivating. The track opens with oscillating synths and staccato rhythms, in which Maie’s breathy vocals are full of hope and longing. After a near one minute build-up, the electronica soundscape takes a dramatic turn reflecting the intensity of change for this virtual artist. 
I am really enjoying the heavy hitting beat and synths that contrast with Maie's smoother tone, creating quite a memorable listening experience. Accompanying the release, Maie has shared its official music video, directed by Daniel Semanas, which finds Maie in her hyper-stylised inner world, but then something calls her to leave. Her surroundings and herself continue to change with each iteration of the metaverse; from extraterrestrial pink landscapes to a cyberpunk dystopia to an ethereal in-between space and finally to the most realistic and human private world. Check it out below!



Speaking about the video, director Daniel Semanas said,
My vision was to create an environment in the cyberpunk style, a retro-futuristic, surreal, alive, grandiose world - being careful to avoid the clichés of the genre. Maie has just been born and been abruptly inserted into this unfamiliar world, so I wanted the look and feel of the environment to reflect her various emotions.
