About Mae Krell
“tooth fairy” is Mae’s first new single since the release of her acclaimed 4-track EP, ‘imposter syndrome,’ which was debuted earlier this year. The EP struck a chord with fans and tastemakers alike, with PRIDE aptly describing it as “an intimate and heart-wrenching dissection of the unavoidable self-doubt we all experience in our 20s.”
Her newest single, “tooth fairy,” is one of the previously unreleased tracks that came from the ‘imposter syndrome’ EP sessions. Beautiful, heart-wrenching and deeply introspective, “tooth fairy” is a song about coming to the realization that you may be better off without someone who you previously thought was indispensable. Mae elaborates: “I wrote it after I found out that someone who used to be my best friend moved to the city where I grew up. It felt like tearing open an old wound that I didn’t know I had, and also put me in a spot to question: if the chance were to arise, would I want to give them a second chance? That’s something I’m still trying to figure out.”
At just 23 years old, Mae exudes a musicality wise beyond her years. Influenced by revered singer-songwriters like Bob Dylan, Phoebe Bridgers and Gregory Alan Isakov, Mae writes intimate reflections that confront past trauma, self-love and personal truths. With a distinct folk-pop sound and undeniable lyrical prowess, she has earned millions of streams across her repertoire with multiple tracks breaking 500K.
