The Weight of the Weekend by Mazey Haze











Mazey Haze has released her new single The Weight of the Weekend, the first new music since her breakout debut EP Always Dancing. The artist's new music finds her letting go of perfectionism and venturing into her love of French New Wave cinema, Italian film scores, and sixties psychedelic rock, all infused into the dreampop standards of her sound.

The Weight of the Weekend outlines the difficult circumstances of Mazey Haze's childhood. “It’s sensitive for me, so it was a scary song to release,” she says. The song is accompanied by a video directed by Tara Wilts and shot in the streets of Bar-le-Duc, France.

Commenting on the lyrical influenced for The Weight of the Weekend, Mazey Haze says: "This song is about me trying to figure out for myself how to connect with people and wanting to get rid of the part of me that holds me back from being free. Thinking about my childhood, myself and people in general. I find it hard to connect with myself and others, want to know why and how to get better. In this song you could say I’m talking to myself, to certain people around me and to the particular voice in my head that refuses to give me real peace and pride in anything I do."
