Rising Australian pop singer MAY-A shared the music video for her song “Daffodils” on Thursday. The short film, for the song from the singer’s recent Atlantic Records debut EP Don’t Kiss Ur Friends, is her 20-year-old singer’s first official music video.
Directed by newcomer Murli, the three-minute video sees the singer performing her song seated surrounded by the titular flowers, in a rotating wash of deep hues. Through retro camera filters, including old-school film ripples and tears, she delivers personal and emotive lyrics.
MAY-A’s debut EP Don’t Kiss Ur Friends arrived last month via Atlantic Records. It compiled her previous commercially available releases and several new songs, including “Swing of Things,” and its remix featuring low-fi rapper Powfi. Tracks from the record were featured on Apple Music’s New Music Daily and New in Pop playlists
MAY-A started releasing music on her YouTube channel last year, quickly rising to fame on the back of her expertly crafted bedroom pop that balances personal songwriting, relatable narratives, powerful hooks, and honest documentation of queer experiences. At only 20 years old, she has already earned praise from major outlets including Billboard magazine and racked up hundreds of thousands of plays on YouTube and Spotify.
The video for “Daffodils” is available now on YouTube. Don’t Kiss Ur Friends is available on streaming services now.
