SINGLE REVIEW Maisie Peters – Favourite Ex

We all have that favourite ex. The one who you wish things went better with. The one who you probably would get back together with even though you don’t really want to admit it to yourself. The one who made the biggest impact on you through the ups and the downs. And that’s where Maisie Peters new single draws inspiration from. The appropriately titled ‘Favourite Ex’ plays on the idea that we all have a favourite ex from our past who will always have a special place in our heart. The vulnerable and delicate song shows yet another tender side to the English singer-songwriter who thoroughly impressed with her debut EP ‘Dressed Too Nice For A Jacket’ last year. As she candidly confesses her feelings through the stripped back and catchy hook, you can’t help but be drawn into the vivid emotional imagery. “You were my best nights and worst fights and couldn’t care less. You were my gold rush to cold touch favourite ex”. It’s lyrics that you can instantly relate to and feel an emotional connection with and that’s the power of the song. “You were my no sleep, cried for weeks, favourite ex”. She keeps the production stripped back and tender to match the storyline and will have you so emotionally involved. The simple strings really bring the perfect layering to the acoustic guitar which layers the foundations to this song. Another impressive and vulnerable moment from an artist you HAVE to keep tabs on.
