On her 2019 album the masquerade, 19-year-old singer/songwriter mxmtoon delivers what she calls rhyming diary entries: an off-the-cuff account of her most private thoughts and feelings. On her latest offering dawn, the first of 2 EPs to be released this year, we see her embrace life with astounding clarity, pushing her sound further than ever before and embracing lush soundscapes and pulsing beats. It's body-moving music for the heart and soul, a soothing and intimate collection of songs inviting us further into mxmtoon's fascinating, quixotic sonic world. The thematic bent of dawn speaks to our uncertain times while embracing a general truism that's always important to remember: "I wanted to remind people that things will be okay and even on the darkest day, the sun still rises," Maia states . "I want to lift people up. I still love making sad songs, but I wanted to make something that felt refreshing to me this time."In her endless effort to create true connection onstage and in her music, mxmtoon has attained an undeniable solidarity with her listeners, ultimately providing some much-needed solace for the shy, the sensitive, the routinely underrepresented.
