Another day, another bedroom pop artist aiming to make a name for themselves amidst all those other bedroom pop artists from [insert U.S. metropolitan area]. While this is the mindset with most of the music sent my way these days, New York’s Maude Latour is a special case.

When she is not studying philosophy and political science, the 19-year-old Columbia University student (who is also fluent in Mandarin and Dutch) is making music inside of a room that sounds as if it were engineered and mixed in a large and expensive studio. Needless to say, music and philosophy are not inseparable for Latour. In fact, she has spent the past year weaving her own philosophical (and political) conclusions into her musical universe.

That being said, Latour's latest single ‘Plans’ displays the rising artist’s complex inclination (an inclination far beyond her years) for introspection and meaning far beyond what lies on the surface. In this case, the concept of love is pondered to a level that transcends the traditional love song.

On the track, Latour says, "'Plans' was a song I wrote in a backyard when I first went to California alone for music. It streamed out of me after hours of meditation and introspection. At the time, it was about a special moment of meeting someone for the first time... eyes meet across the room. But I’ve come to realize the song is about me, how I love. We phrase love as if it’s another person effecting us, but in actuality, it is ourselves changing and evolving and growing. Through love and heartbreak and crushes we see what we need and who we are. 'Plans' is a feeling for me; a warm and shimmering start of something new."
