mxmtoon shares new single “victim of nostalgia”

mxmtoon releases its new rising album on May 20, it’s a triumphant return and shows a new, more dynamic and highly danceable facet of the 21-year-old artist.

It’s hard to believe that only four years have passed since Maia’s self-made songs and videos began shaping a new kind of star thanks to mxmtoon. But at least two of those years have, of course, passed like decades, each filled with enough worry, misfortune and loss and hope to catalyze aging as a whole.

And so it goes with The Rise, mxmtoon’s bold, compelling and wise sophomore album, a 12-song set that examines the toughest lessons of those last dark days and chooses to forge ahead through the triumphs of pop and disco sectarianism.

Today, she’s back with another song called “victim of nostalgia”, a song that examines time and how fast it passes without us even realizing it until it’s too late. mxmtoon tells us “Many of us have fallen victim to this feeling that time is going too fast.

I feel like I blinked one afternoon and suddenly found myself completely cemented into adulthood, utterly unprepared for the future and desperately wishing I could go back in time. “victim of nostalgia” is about missing the blind optimism and warmth that are so much easier to feel when you’re younger.

Wanting to escape to a time when your worries weren’t so overwhelming. Looking ahead can be daunting, and I know I personally struggle with how quickly the years can feel in the grand scheme of things. I hope one day it will be easier to accept the passage of time, but for now I definitely find myself a victim of nostalgia.”

Previously released songs “sad disco” and “mona lisa” give fans an exciting insight into the musical journey that mxmtoon is embarking on. It was the music she needed to make and hear after those years that felt like decades, after she had grown up enough to know that it was what other people might need too. These songs collectively argue that the growth is never over, that the rise is just one of many reboots and debuts to come.

mxmtoon’s last North American tour sold out fast and they just announced that a massive world tour of tickets across all continents are selling out fast again. The latest preview can be found below.
