Vancouver pop artist Madisyn Gifford has released her cheeky new single, “Hospital Beds“. The catchy, upbeat track is sure to have listeners hanging on to the final threads of summer and warm weather with its bright vocals and groovy bass lines. Listen to it now below.
Speaking on the song, Madisyn said, “The song Hospital Beds is a really interesting one for me and also a song that I’m insanely proud of. I originally wrote it in October of 2021 as a slow melancholy acoustic song and it wasn’t until August 2022 that my producer and co-writer Jared Manierka and I decided to take a completely different approach and turn it into the tongue and cheek alternative pop song it is today. Essentially throughout the track I am making fun off and calling myself out for my own victim complex and tendency to self sabotage my own relationships. Although I think the song is really funny and fun lyrically I also think it manages to be very vulnerable and honest at the same time which is something that I am very proud of. I’m so excited about this track and for it to finally be out in the world!”
Quickly joining the new generation of Canadian artists getting noticed in the rising pop scene, Madisyn has already accumulated over 1.2M Youtube views and 682K Spotify streams since her debut release “Without You” in 2020. Her transcendent take on indie-folk with an integral pop tinge has earned accolades from media, industry moguls, and music-loving masses alike; but with her latest output, Madisyn is proving herself to be a complete creative force, serving up stories and introspections as compelling as the soundtrack to which they’re set.
Despite having just hit her 20s, the quick-blooming, genre-bending artist has been quite prolific, dropping her debut EP, Learning to Exist, via 604 Records in the spring of 2021 and heralded follow-up LP, I hate ur guts, less than a year later. Now, she’s putting the final touches on the next musical milestone of what’s already an impressive artistic path. Madisyn has seen her fanbase swell consistently and organically along the way, earning millions of streams across the major platforms; coverage from tastemaking outlets like Rolling Stone, Consequence, EARMILK, Sweety High, RANGE, Popternative, and CLOUT; and live performances on national networks.
