Ci Majr shares new slice of indie pop 'Guillotine'
Updated: Mar 5, 2021
Vibrant and vivacious, Ci Majr is giving us another dose of her infectious indie-pop with new single ‘Guillotine’.
After the success of her previous release ‘Summer Drug’, Ci looks set to continue her ascent with this latest offering. Using 80’s-tinged synth patterns, punchy percussion and peppy piano melodies, the rhythm is full of catchy hooks that are perfectly paired with the Chicago artist’s perfect vocals. The music video exhibits Ci in dashes of face paint intertwining between blue and yellow hues, with various effects marrying in time with the track. Allowing her artistic flair to soak through both visually and sonically, we are introduced to Chi as a performer in a way that is brimming with personality.
Describing the inspiration that came when writing the song, Ci quotes, “Within the romantic context, this is something that I definitely have had to learn in recent years in my current relationship. You can so easily get caught up in the same arguments over and over only to realize that maybe you were wrong all along and it was your ego that was preventing you from coming to some sort of agreement that can appease both parties. The relationship that I'm in right now has taught me so much about this, so I guess within the romantic context this song was somewhat written to my past self. Past Ci would have been a lot better off if they would have just realized that when you're in a relationship it's a lot less about being right all of the time, it's about not being afraid to be vulnerable”.
Boasting an eclectic range of musical inspirations, including the likes of Daft Punk, Christine and the Queens and Ms Lauryn Hill, Ci intends to create “sparkly, relatable little gems” within her music, creating a sound that is truly unique to her. With ‘Guillotine’ a promising slice of pop that is destined to be played over and over this springtime, Ci Majr is one to keep an eye on this year.
