Needle Drop: Madelin, “Girl I Never Was”

Brooklyn, NY-based singer-songwriter Madelin has consistently produced rebellious, oddball pop that feels eerily in step with the times.

Her newest single and accompanying video, “Girl I Never Was,” continues this tradition, boasting an unyielding narrative on total self-acceptance in the face of an inherently chauvinistic society.

The song was conceived directly after Madelin discovered her bi-sexuality and illustrates this awakening without coming off as heavy-handed. In fact, for such a deeply personal song, “Girl I Never Was” bubbles with a whimsical effervescence.

“I think people will gravitate to this video because it portrays the female experience in a deadpan, comedic way,” Madelin says. “I’m not a super serious person. I touch on real emotions and big concepts, but I do it with a wink.”
