Following the release of her ‘dawn’ EP earlier this year, mxmtoon has announced that she’ll be releasing her ‘dusk’ EP on 1st October.
Sharing new song ‘bon iver’ alongside the news, she says of the track, “when we think of nightfall, we often associate it to the ‘end’ of something. the ‘bon iver’ music video is meant to counter that notion, and to spark thought over the possibilities that are ahead instead. a day does not just end when the sun goes down, you continue to find wonder and joy despite the dark, and a whole other world awaits you as the moon glides overhead. new beginnings are not limited to a rising sun, your world is what you make it whenever you choose to begin.”
Speaking to us about the EP for our July 2020 issue, she explained, “It’s a lot more introspective and has more sombre moments. It opens with the song ‘bon iver’ which is written about, obviously, Bon Iver. It’s the most positive on the record and it’s the transition from dawn to dusk.”
