With a sleek bassline, snappy hooks and infectious chorus, “Shiver,” is bound to get you on your feet and onto the dancefloor. The song is an energetic explosion of euphoria that will loop in your head over and over. From the western hills of Northern Virginia, Maggie Miles, is a 20-year-old singer/songwriter. Her music draws on the complexities of human existence, dressed in fun pop grooves and disco tech.
“Shiver” dropped today. The song begins sparse, with Maggie crooning, “Loneliness it’s invited/but loneliness/we all hide it/and bitterness is what we store inside.” On the next verse, a slick base line and disco beat enters, creating a light, happy soundscape for the listener. The hook is a snappy one-two punch of catchiness and attitude with a glittering synth in the distance, building the track before a shimmering transition explodes into a euphoric chorus. The chorus is a simple sing-along of, “Don’t let it get a grip on you,” with a catchy reframe in the background played on loop. The bassline and cheerful keyboard are reminiscent of a Charlie Puth song, drawing inspiration from modern pop and 70s disco.
“Shiver” is a fun track with the combination of soulful vocal delivery, grounded lyrics, and fun instrumentals create a release. For Maggie Miles this is just the beginning.
