Since her 2015 debut, Maggie Lindemann has quietly emerged as one of pop’s most subversive forces. Without a filter, her uncompromising approach drove the breakout “Pretty Girl” to platinum status and over 1 billion streams in addition to anthems such as “Obsessed” (64.6 million Spotify streams) and “Couple of Kids” (38.3 million Spotify streams). She capped off 2019 with “Friends Go” [feat. Travis Barker], which Ones To Watch described as “an electrifying, almost retro pop track.” 2019 also brought a scare in Malaysia with immigration (she wound up in jail, on house arrest and standing trial twice—due to a visa issue). This experience proved life changing as upon her return to the US, Maggie turned her feelings towards more new music. At that point, she held absolutely nothing back in the studio. One of the songs that emerged is her first track of 2020, the radiant alt-pop song “Knife Under My Pillow.” "Knife Under My Pillow” is co-written with acclaimed singer/songwriter Alex Lahey. “I lived in this house for a few years, and I was always paranoid that there was someone in the house with me,” says Lindemann of the song’s origins. “It was sort of driving me insane, to the point that I started keeping a knife under my pillow at night, so this song is very literal.” Along the way, Maggie has also successfully launched her SWIXXZ clothing line and recently introduced her own podcast, swixxzaudio, during quarantine to combat the loneliness of it all. At 22 years of age, Maggie has truly uncovered her voice as a songwriter and injected a fierce dose of honesty regarding anxieties, obsessions, and insecurities.
