Born from the tangled web of a teenage love triangle, “Barbie” channels the tumultuous emotions Graf navigated at the tender age of 13. With refreshing honesty, she poured her heart into the lyrics, crafting an upbeat yet introspective exploration of self-doubt, jealousy, and the pressures of comparison that so many young people grapple with.

“‘Barbie’ was my first song, born from a tangled situation: I liked a guy who was also talking to my friend,” Graf reveals. “It sparked emotions that I ended up pouring into the music. Although this song is upbeat and fun, it’s also very vulnerable and relatable in a way.”

It’s a potent combination that hits you right in the feels while simultaneously making you want to roll down the windows and sing along at the top of your lungs.

“This is a song for listeners to scream-sing in the shower, in the car, or wherever they are,” Graf declares. “It embodies female rage.”

For the rising star, music has always been a vessel for releasing pent-up emotions, a lifelong journey that began with journaling and songwriting from a young age. Raised in an environment that fostered her creative spirit, Graf found solace in putting pen to paper, her music becoming a microscope into her soul and lived experiences.

Taking inspiration from Gracie Abrams, Taylor Swift, Avril Lavigne, and Phoebe Bridgers, Graf’s raspy vocals and introspective lyricism evoke a refreshing authenticity that sets her apart in the indie-pop scene. Her emotionally driven melodies resonate with a raw vulnerability, capturing the essence of human emotions in a way that feels both deeply personal and universally relatable.

As she continues to evolve creatively, Mae Graf remains steadfastly dedicated to her craft, aspiring to leave an indelible impact on the music industry.
