mxmtoon – Sad Disco

With over 1 billion streams and more than 2,5 million TikTok fans, mxmtoon reaches many people. She likes to use this platform to express her feelings about subjects close to her heart. LGBTQ+ rights, the increasing violence against Asian Americans or mental health for instance.

She started her career five years ago with dreamy pop songs and introverted lyrics. So far, the prolific artist released eight EP’s, 35 singles (partly as featured artist) and an album. Her sophomore long-player Rising is on its way and will be out on 20 May.

Sad Disco is the second single to be put out ahead of it. The track has mxmtoon looking back on her previous work and analysing her own growth.

“I was 17 years old when i wrote my song Prom Dress”, she explains. “Four years later, I sat and listened to it, wondering if the lyrics and ideas still resonated with my now 21-year-old self. I decided that it did, and it also didn’t. I’d grown up since I wrote that song and realised I wanted to make something that felt current to my individual. Sad Disco was the resolution to that desire. A song built with the same bones that Prom Dress was made from, but more reflective of the growth I’ve experienced in my own life since. It’s a song meant to make you find joy in the quiet, to emulate that feeling of being alone in your bedroom, blasting music through a pair of headphones in the middle of the night. In a way, it feels like an answer to the girl who wrote Prom Dress in the first place. Serving as a reminder that she isn’t stuck on the floor with tears streaming down her face forever, but that she’ll grow up, and the loneliness she sometimes feels won’t define her. She can still choose to dance and have her own β€˜sad disco’.”
