Get to Know Nicky MacKenzie’s New “Come Back” Single

Nicky MacKenzie – “Come Back” single

“‘Come Back’ is about knowing something is bad for you but still returning to it over and over again. The song expresses feelings of vulnerability and self-awareness – when you know you’re doing something wrong, but you’re stuck in a cycle of hunger and madness.

I wrote ‘Come Back’ a long time ago before COVID when I was taking audio engineering at school in Vancouver. I was first developing the songwriting styles I knew I liked and ‘Come Back’ came as a very fluid, lyrical, and almost experimental song at the time. Sometimes, I like to write songs without thinking too much, almost word vomit the lines out, and then figure out what it means after. It’s a good way to dig deep and surprise yourself. This was one of my first attempts at that and there are a lot of metaphors in this song for things I was going through at the time.” – Nicky MacKenzie explained

“Come Back” follows on the heels of Nicky MacKenzie’s previously released tracks “Comfortable” and “Morals.” The songs will be featured on her forthcoming EP, “MORALS,” which showcases her indelible talent for crafting soul-moving songs that linger in the heart, body, and mind.

Nicky MacKenzie is capable of creating hauntingly poignant restraint and irresistibly catchy pop melodies. By focusing on the universalities that shape us – breakups, self-doubt, nights out – Nicky leaves space for her audience to unpack their own experiences.

On “MORALS,” Nicky’s commanding vocals weave into hypnotic R&B melodies, drawing inspiration from the likes of Charlotte Day Wilson, Daniel Caesar, and Hozier. Adding layers to Nicky’s vision is LA-based production duo Likeminds, who infused the EP with body-moving synths and percussion.

The EP moves from the quiet, introspective crackle of “Lost and Found” to powerhouse pop offerings like “I Should Go” and “No Man’s Land,” a dynamic, Dua Lipa-esque ride erupting with vibrant brass. Tracks “Grown” and “Comfortable” examine the space between adolescence and young adulthood, questioning what it will feel like to finally arrive in a place of self-reliance.
