"Touch the Ground" is pop in its purest sense, a style that draws from everything around it and reflects what people are listening to.
The pop of Maggie Szabo's “Touch the Ground” straddles a few tangential genre lines. There’s the subdued drums and piano of soft rock, there’s the riffing associated with a radio-ready take on soul, there’s the slight twang and shuffle of country and bluegrass. In other words, it’s pop in its purest sense, a style that draws from everything around it and reflects what people are listening to. Szabo is a uniting force, a singer who appeals to disparate groups of listeners, and that bringing together is always a force for good. Music is better when it’s shared.
"Have you ever been in a situation or a relationship where things have ever felt like they were moving too fast?” asks Szabo. “That’s what this song is about. It’s about wanting to slow down, wanting a chance to take a deep breath, and wanting to enjoy the moment for what it is."
