Fashion Club – “Pantomime”
Fashion Club released the second track off their upcoming debut album, Scrutiny.
On the track, Pascal Stevenson shares, “This is the first song I wrote for this record. It’s about different kinds of social performance, and how we weigh our needs against others. A lot of people advocate for marginalized groups in their public lives but then don’t make any effort to look inward and address their own harmful behavior in their private lives.”

Opening up about “Mr. Percocet,” Noah shares, “This song is written about my personal experience with the confusion and insecurities that arise in a relationship when substance abuse is involved.

On the album, Post Animal’s Matthew Williams shares, “This album takes us back to how it felt before we ever thought we’d be an actual touring band, with no expectations for ourselves. Now, we’re inside the gibberish-ness of life, trying to figure out what we need to survive.”
mxmtoon – “coming of age”
mxmtoon released another single, “coming of age,” off her new album, rising, out next Friday. The song has already received a warm welcome from fans on their current tour.
Speaking on the track, mxmtoon’s Maia says, “I started focusing on mxmtoon when I was seventeen. Four years have passed since then, and I’ve grown up and changed so much since being the teenager that started all of this. “coming of age” is about the growth I’ve experienced between writing, producing, and personally understanding the individual I know myself to be currently. It’s a strange experience having thousands of people watch you grow up and enter your twenties, and it felt necessary to make a song that simultaneously celebrates the uncertainty of self discovery but can find confidence in growth. My hope is that “coming of age” establishes that mxmtoon is always changing, just as I am myself.
