By combining young and energetic vocals with a wide range of soundscapes, Margot shows a fierce independency with ‘Slow Down’. Singing the song as if it is written to a lover, the songstress promotes self-love. She encourages the listener to take a step back from current day pressures, while also acknowledging their own strengths. The sparkles of pop and vibrant bassline bring a lightness to the message, easily guiding the way to a path of happiness.
Originally from Paris, France, lived in Berlin, Germany and now based in London, UK, Margot has been trained to play both the violin and the piano. When she was younger, the songstress was exposed to a wide variety of music from classical opera to Rage Against The Machine, however when seeking inspiration for her own work Margot turns to the likes of Erykah Badu, H.E.R., Raveena, Ari Lennox, Frank Ocean and Rihanna.
Margot reveals a little about the creation of the single, “This song actually went through a long writing process. Frank Slimm and I started this one in April 2019 while I was still living in Berlin and it got shelved for months while we were working on other projects. When we dug it out again, I couldn’t believe we left it for so long! I drafted up a new set of lyrics and it all fell together in about two days. The song itself is about self-care and self-love, taking time out of the day to look after yourself and enjoy the little things, and to remind myself that the time I spend working on myself is just as important as the time I spend working on my career.”
“Make it Last” will be released October 9.
