Hot on the heels of her Kendrick Lamar cover, Montreal-based producer RYAN Playground has just dropped her debut single “Are You Mad” via Secret Songs, an online label run by fellow Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth. This wintery track is a taster of her forthcoming EP elle, due February 24 through the same DIY platform.

RYAN Playground is a triple threat: producer, singer, and songwriter. “Are You Mad” serves as an introspective anthem about the loss of security—her emotional vocals tiptoe around distant, icy drums as she wonders where did I lose you at? Each defeated verse lingers long enough to become a strength—self-doubt turns to resolve, coalescing with the increasingly energetic production. Like the ups and downs of a relationship, “Are You Mad” rides the wave into a hopeful place.
