Television Is My Friend back in early 2014, 23-year-old Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Maddie Ross returns with her brand new single called "Make Me A Safe Place", which starts off as an angsty lo-fi number before erupting at the one minute mark into a full-fledged guitar-driven alt-pop anthem, complete with fierce vocals and infectious hooks. The track also serves as the first in a series three songs that Maddie plans to release over the course of the summer under the title Making Out Is Easy.
Speaking on the track, Maddie says:
"I wrote 'Make Me A Safe Place' on a super hot, shitty LA October day in my non-air conditioned bedroom. Maybe it was the sweat and dehydration but the demo was really sexual and painful and dark. It's a song about enjoying sex and feeling comfortable enough with a partner to let go of all of your pain and hangups, which is a very vulnerable topic for me. It was such a rare performance that we chose to use that demo as the first verse/chorus of the final recording. Then my amazing producer Wolfy (aka Madison Scheckel) helped build the huge, fun, full-band performance."
