Wildcard (week 32):
May-a – Central Station

Maya Cumming is a self-made artist who started her career as an extremely successful YouTuber. Her videos often reached over a million views. Nevertheless, she deleted them following her decision to fully focus on her musical career. Attracting an impressive fanbase (once again) with her first, self-released songs, she recently signed to major label Atlantic.

May-a already worked with Baby Queen and Powfu, and just released her debut EP Don’t Kiss Ur Friends. “It follows the course of a relationship, a journey of queer discovery, and the growth from an adolescent to a young adult”, she explains. “Each song is a piece of the last four or five years of my life, the most recent track having been written last year and the earliest at 16. As the music developed, so did I. You can listen to me grow up, gain confidence and understand myself through the way I approach my relationships.”

Central Station is the 19-year-old Sydney-based singer-songwriter’s new single. She wrote is near the end of her relationship with the girl half the EP is about. The track starts off with Cumming sitting on a train talking to her girlfriend, while looking at this other person in the train. Bursting with self-awareness with a dash of cynicism, it outlines just how fast we can lose our feelings for those who were once the centre of our world.

As our new Wildcard, Central Station by May-a is the centre-piece of the Carte Blanche Music blog. It’ll feature here prominently for a whole week, before leaving from platform one.
