Mae Krell gets their hopes up on emotional “colorblind”


When it comes to the intimacies of daily life, Mae Krell knows how to go there.  The 22-year-old singer and songwriter has captured moments of trauma, self-love, and personal growth in their songs, which resonate with thousands of listeners on a monthly basis.  The singles that Mae released last year have topped over 500,000 streams, showing that even though Mae might not have it all figured out, there are so many out there who understand and connect with what they are saying.

For their newest single, “colorblind,” Mae recounts a moment when they thought that their first true relationship was officially over.  Mae reveals, “I wrote ‘colorblind’ in the midst of what I thought was going to be the end of a relationship with the first girl I ever truly fell in love with.  I’ll be the first to admit that I feel everything too much, but during the couple of days that this was going on, I really felt like the world was ending.  I was wildly sad while also being very restless in a way that I had never experienced before.

As Mae reflects on that painful moment, they paint touching visuals that make the heartache all the more palpable.  Over quiet drums and soft guitar melodies that peak and dip, Mae sings, “We walked together to the carpark / As if there was something left to say” and “I squeezed your hand, you flinched / The skies turned black, I blinked,” calling forth feelings that we all have experienced in a similar way.  Try not to get too choked up as you listen to the track below.

You can listen to “colorblind” on platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.
