In this edition of The Last Mixed Tape’s song-of-the-week feature The Mixed-Tape we turn our attention to ‘Small Talk’ by Maria Kelly.
Maria Kelly’s run of stand-out singles (see: ‘Hollow’, ‘Threads’ and ‘Things I Should’) continues with ‘Small Talk’. An atmospheric new offering, ‘Small Talk’ rests on a backdrop of clam soundscapes.
One of the most engaging aspects of Maria Kelly’s songwriting is the artist’s lyrical honesty. In ‘Small Talk’ Kelly deftly takes an introspective look at social anxiety, and the struggles, doubt and fear that it can cause.
