The track is the exciting artist’s first release of 2022.

Having garnered a reputation for her relatable, candid lyrics and effortlessly engaging hooks and melodies, Maya Malkin has carved out a niche for herself as someone who can seamlessly blend more emotive storytelling with a shiny pop sheen.

Her latest single ‘Hypocrite’ is the latest example of the artist’s deftness for balancing the two, with its mature lyricism and frank candor met with a glossy, radio-ready pop sound, building a bridge between these two styles to create something that bleeds both substance and style. As Maya continues to expose different facets to her sound and writing, it only becomes more apparent what a well rounded storyteller and artist that she is.

When speaking on the new single, Maya said“This one is like the breaking point. It pretty much starts from the beginning of the end of the relationship, and takes you to the ultimate end, where I’ve hit peak frustration. So it’s really the angsty climax of the whole story, where I’ve had more than I could take, and had to call it what it was. It’s more on the rock end of the spectrum, which is really fun, and just drives the point home even more – it’s very guitar-driven, and aggressive; similar to Congratulations, but cranked up a notch. This is another song that’s super therapeutic to me, and I think it will be for a lot of other people, too.”
