Aptly named Naarm/Melbourne-based artist and producer m8riarchy commands the speakers and stage with her enrapturing vocals and extensive resume. Her latest single ‘Body’ journeys through sexuality, self-expression and freedom. It’s an invigorating and playful celebration of all things vulnerable. Channeling the likes of Calvin Harris and Robyn, ‘Body’ signals the high energy and spirit of classic dance-pop anthems.
m8riarchy is an immensely talented, highly-skilled producer, committed to redefining the Australian music landscape and promoting women in the space alongside names such as Ninajirachi, Nina Las Vegas and Surusinghe.
The euphoric tone of ‘Body’ is set with opening words “Enjoy yourself.” Shimmering synths and deep basslines cultivate a sparkling soundscape through which m8riarchy’s vocals shine. Exploring the relationship between confidence and seduction, m8riarchy’s timbre is exceptionally unique and lies in a similar vein to Nyxen, Aluna, Kota Banks, and CXlOE.
Speaking about the new single, m8riarchy explained, “Body is a sex-positive dancefloor banger that explores pleasure and connection. I wanted to create a euphoric symphony that invites listeners to celebrate the joys of sensuality, sexuality, playfulness and self-expression.”
m8riarchy co-writes and co-produces the track alongside Matthew Hadley (Total Giovanni). Mixed by Matthew, the track was then mastered by Stuart Hawkes (Metropolis). Speaking of the process of creating ‘Body’ she says, “I wrote Body ten years ago and struggled with the production to the point where I had given up on ever releasing it. Matt expressed interest in collaborating and, given our similar tastes in dance music, it worked out perfectly for us to bring Body to life together.”
m8riarchy has taken her live synthesis and soaring vocals to festival stages like Gaytimes, Brunswick Music Festival, and Melbourne Music Week as well as headline shows at treasured Melbourne venues Colour, The Gasometer and The Evelyn.
‘Body’ possesses that special power that whisks you away to a dreamland of m8riarchy’s creation. Invoking an undulating dancefloor of hazy smoke, and pulsing lights, ‘Body’ is a celebration of self-love.
