With the entire city in mourning after the loss of Kobe Bryant, there is no better time for mxmtoon’s new single, “fever dream.” In it, the LA-based musician encourages us to avoid complacency and enjoy every fleeting moment. The track is the first she has released since her album The Masquerade came out last year.
Continuing her momentum, mxmtoon will be embarking on a national tour this May. Catch mxmtoon live at the Fonda Theater on May 14, supported by Temporex.
“Take your time, enjoy it…Getting by’s so boring,” mxmtoon, née Maia, sings on “fever dream.” The video is a compilation of her childhood stage performances, each one having contributed to who she is today. Even the gentle guitar melody suggests that life is precious; a heavy drum machine drops in to remind us that dancing and having fun is just as important as any responsibility—something we should never forget.
