At just 18 years of age and residing in NYC, Mae Krell has already made a name for themself in the music industry. Along with their music, Mae also has interests in fashion and music photography, having shot for Rolling Stone, JAM, Tongue Tied (of which they are also founder and editor-in-chief), American Apparel, and Brandy Melville. Music-wise, Krell has released two singles, Monsters and Scars, both off of their upcoming debut EP Anabasis. Their style is that perfect blend of acoustic and electric, which, when combined with Krell’s clean vocals and powerful lyrics, Krell’s music is soul-soothing.
With Monsters and Scars both being about overcoming personal demons and the opinions of others, listeners can only hope that the rest of Anabasis is just as hopeful and inspiring. Anabasis will be released online on February 16, 2018, the same night Krell plays the Greenpoint Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. Krell has grown immensely since their humble start on Soundcloud; their singles boasting over 250,000 streams on Spotify. Keep up with Mae Krell with the links below, and be sure to look out for their EP Anabasis, release on February 16th .
