Today North London singer-songwriter Mae Muller shares her new single ‘So Annoying’ and its accompanying video, directed by Sophie Muller [No Doubt, Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Beyoncé].
Written by Mae, Rick Nowels [Madonna, Lana Del Rey] and Skyler Stonestreet [Ariana Grande, Chainsmokers], ‘So Annoying’ sees Mae explain her disdain for pining for her love, exhibiting her stripped back vocals layered over the melodic sounds of the guitar. Directed by Sophie Muller, the video takes us on a journey of the distractions that occur when preoccupied with missing someone. Featuring her friends and family including a special cameo from her younger sibling, taking on the role of the annoying younger brother, the video is a personal tale of Mae’s struggles with love.
Speaking on ‘So Annoying’ Mae shares, “So Annoying is a song about falling in love without wanting to. Usually people like the idea of falling in love, but to me it’s just scary and slightly inconvenient! When you love somebody you’re almost handing over that power; if you left, it would affect me! So to me that always seemed daunting. I also wanted to write about the push and pull you sometimes can experience when you’re in love. Even though we fight and you aggravate the hell out of me, we will always run back to each other. How annoying!!!”
