“I wrote Apocalyptic Folk Song about climate anxiety and my existential dread,” shares MadisonOn the track, she laments how, “Children are dying from the heat,” while going on to face the flames head-on, “Presidents are gluttonous for violence and greed.” Sonically, earthy percussion anchors the track as she conjures up soulful harmonies between a loose guitar rhythm. She contorts her voice from a smoky timbre on the verses into a cathartic wail on the chorus. It only paves the way for more music to come from the rapidly rising troubadour.
