Ria Mae New EP Stars

RIA MAE SHARES STRUGGLES WITH SOCIAL MEDIA ON NEW EP STARS

Canadian pop singer Ria Mae takes listeners on an emotional voyage through relationships on her new EP, Stars. Navigating beyond lyrical and sonic boundaries, Stars allows listeners to feel a sense of human connection, something Ria believes is lacking in today’s social climate.

“Hold Me” was inspired by the invasive negativity and anxiety social media create. Nostalgic for a simpler time, the duet emerged after a conversation with Frank Kadillac and Lowell. “We were talking about how easy life used to feel when we were young and how anxious a lot of our peers seem to be right now,” Ria stated in Divine Magazine.

The remainder of Stars illustrates Ria Mae’s ability to empathize with her listeners. “Trixi,” is a provocative track about desire and obsession and is the first character-driven song Ria’s written. “Not Your Type,” Ria’s forthcoming single, is a pro-consent pop song that showcases Ria’s playful side. “It’s You,” is a raw and honest breakup anthem.

Ria Mae’s first single “Bend” became an instant hit, skyrocketing to Top 5 at Hot AC, Top 15 at AC, and Top 15 at CHR radio, reaching platinum certification status. Ria was nominated for “Pop Album of the Year” at the 2018 JUNO Awards for “My Love.” Two years earlier, Ria also earned a JUNO nomination for “Single of the Year” for her platinum-selling hit “Clothes Off” that has over 13 million streams worldwide.

On ‘Growing Pains,’ Alessia grapples with feelings of confusion and isolation, searches for peace, and ultimately finds joy in the face of her rapid-fire transition from childhood to becoming a young adult and an artist. Read the lyrics below…
“Growing Pains” Lyrics:
(verse 1)
Make my way through the motions
I try to ignore it
But home’s looking farther the closer I get
Don’t know why I can’t see the end
Is it over yet?

A short leash and a short fuse
Don’t match
They tell me it ain’t that bad
“now, don’t you overreact”
So I just hold my breath
Don’t know why I can’t see the sun
When young should be fun

(Pre-chorus)
And I guess the bad can get better
Gotta be wrong before it’s right
Every happy phrase engraved in my mind
And I’ve always been a go-getter
There’s truth in every word I write
But still the growing pains, growing pains
They’re keeping me up at night

(Chorus)
(hey hey x8)
And I can’t hide
‘cause growing pains are keeping me up
at night (x2)

(verse 2)
Try to mend what’s left
Of my content incomprehension
As I take on the stress
Of the mess that I’ve made
Don’t know if I even care for “grown”
If it’s just alone

(pre chorus)
(chorus)

(Bridge)
It’s starting to look like
Ms. Know-it-All can’t take her own advice
Can’t find
Pieces of my peace of mind
I Cry
More than I want to admit but I can’t lie
To myself, to anyone
Cause phoning it in isn’t any fun
Cant run
Back to my youth the way I want to
The days my brother was quicker to fool
AM radio, not much to do
Used monsters as an excuse
To lie awake
Now that monsters are the ones that I
Have to face
No band-aids for the growing pains
