Meg Mac is the latest artist brought to my attention who is creating the likes of vintage sounding soul-pop. At just 22 years old, it’s hard to imagine that such a powerful voice belongs to the adorably cute songstress to your left. Meg’s lyrics in her single, “Known Better”, are pulled from her own past experiences of naivety. While the inspiration may be taken from a moment that she isn’t particularly proud of, it sure makes a good song.
“Known Better” starts off pretty simple as Meg croons over a lonely piano. Soon, she’s joined by a drum kit and a tambourine, adding to the track’s emotion as it steadily builds into a hard hitting, force of energy. The chorus is the strength of “Known Better”. It’s bold, it’s relatable, and it packs a punch. It doesn’t matter what it is that Meg Mac regrets. We can place our own faults into the lyrics, and by the time the song is closing with a chant of “I’m sorry”, maybe we’re able to forgive ourselves.
