LA-based indie-pop singer-songwriter Maeve Steele has released her latest single “Strangers in the Garden,” a mystical, hypnotically grooving ballad about loneliness and the feeling of being lost even if you feel you have much to be grateful for. With “Strangers in the Garden,” Maeve invites listeners into her expertly crafted and deeply intimate musical world in a way that marks her true promise as a rising artist.
Maeve collaborated with indie musician Daniel Loumpouridis (co-writer/producer of Louis The Child’s breakout single “It’s Strange (ft. K.Flay)”) on the new track. “Strangers in the Garden” draws comparison between a failing relationship and a withering garden, showcasing Maeve’s masterful storytelling. Against a dreamy piano-driven melody, she poignantly captures the barren feeling of loneliness and being lost. With “Strangers in the Garden,” Maeve utilizes her expertly crafted lyricism and powerful imagery to effortlessly capture her listeners.
“Strangers in the Garden is an ode to the confusing and sometimes self indulgent mess of our mid twenties,” says Maeve. “I found inspiration in Maggie Nelson’s ‘Bluets,’ a book about longing and love in various shades of blue. This felt like my very own bluet; a song about feeling lost amidst so much beauty to be grateful for.”
