CURRENT: Ellie Herring – “Maze”

Ellie Herring’s blistering “Maze” – the b-side to her forthcoming single release in October – splits through the speakers and relentlessly asserts its scattered, frenetic intentions in its opening seconds. The bounce-inspired opening sets the tone, as the song swirls at a dizzying pace. The longer you stick with “Maze,” the more entrenched you become in the sonics, no exit in sight. There aren’t many other places I’d rather get lost in than the “Maze.”
