“Welcome to your new fave artist”

Artist on the rise MAY-A today shares ‘Say Nothing (MAY-A’s Version)’. Her own remake of the major collaboration with Flume, MAY-A’s version is hauntingly sparse, lo-fi and vulnerable, LISTEN HERE.

Collaborating together on the chart-topping track earlier this year, MAY-A then went on to perform alongside Flume for his headline sets on the Main Stage at Coachella Music Festival in Palm Springs in April and The appearance drew acclaim from such outlets as BillboardPitchfork and amongst others, the latter of which named it among this year’s seven most “captivating non-headline sets“. MAY-A will also join as a special guest on a select string of Flume’s US tour dates and his recently announced Australia album tour in November. 

Say Nothing (MAY-A’s Version)’ follows her sold-out debut headline tour this last month which drew praise for her “authentic, confident and carefree” performance “at the level of an artist you would expect to see at an arena show.” With support from Carla WehbeIoakim, and Nick Ward, the series of sold-out shows across so-called Australia’s east coast, continue to affirm MAY-A’s position as an arena-ready star.

Since the launch of her breakthrough single ‘Green’ on triple jUnearthed in 2020, MAY-A swiftly launched into stardom landing her first ARIA nomination for ‘Best Breakthrough Act’, in the wake of her debut EP Don’t Kiss Ur Friends. With each release, EP favourites ‘Central Station’, ‘Swing Of Lives’, Apricots’, ‘Daffodils’, ‘Amiinmyhead?’ and ‘Time I Love To Waste’ saw MAY-A grow from strength to strength, affording praise and recognition from press around the world. Vogue recognised her as one of “the next generation of Australian musicians”; Billboard heralded her as a “rising pop talent” and MAY-A solidified herself as a triple j mainstay amongst praise from VarietyDorkPAPER, and many more.

MAY-A began this year by celebrating her spot at #101 in triple j’s Hottest 200, features, collaborations, and performances with some of the nation’s most respected and burgeoning stars – The Veronicas, DMA’S, Budjerah, and Flume – to performing across the world’s biggest festival stages. MAY-A will continue on the road for the remainder of the year, making her debut across iconic Australian festivals such as Splendour In The GrassLost Paradise and FallsFestival, as well as supporting pop-punk mavens 5SOS on their national tour this summer before starting the year on tour in the UK/Europe supporting Wallows (Dylan Minnette).

Songwriting since age twelve, Maya Cumming has honed a brand of lyricism that marries the classic pop structures and storytelling of the parental favourites that permeated her childhood home, together with the nonchalant Gen Z cool of Clairo, and the suburban poetry of Lorde.
With her poignant, elliptical storytelling, clear-eyed observational lyricism, and songwriting full of musical left-turns, as MAY-A she interrogates the realities of youth with clarity and maturity beyond her nineteen years to global acclaim.
