Madge Music Makes the Rounds with National Fall Tour

Rising pop artist hailing from Salt Lake City, Madge begins a national tour from Washington State to New York with a stop in Washington D.C. at DC9 on September 27, 2003.

Exceptionally timed with the recent release of her latest EP, ravepack, and featuring the single “notss,” the tour is certain to span the gap between goth and pop through tight rhythms and shadow-invoking imagery.

About the EP, Madge says, “ravepack is pop from the dungeon, an exploration of adorable meets f*cked up in the post-Soviet underground. I was 90 percent sad and 10 percent raving when I made these songs, produced by Grandbankss and co-written with Tzar. Between each track is an interlude that I created myself DJ-style so the mixtape translates as one continuous set to feel existential dread to.”

“notts” is a beautifully complicated track with echoes of VGM, industrial, and J-pop and features a vocal arrangement full of effects that is utilized to capture a very particular tone throughout. If you’d like to hear a more natural sounding vocal, check out “one heart baby,” though throughout the album a variety of vocal effects are displayed to help convey various emotions or resonances.

= supporting Zand

When stopping into D.C.’s “tri-level hipster hangout with snug basement bar, music stage with dance parties & rooftop deck” on Sept 27, Madge will be supporting ZAND, who coined the term ‘ugly pop’ with their November 2020 debut EP, Ugly Pop.

“notts” is available now on major streaming platforms like Spotify, and Apple Music.
