mxmtoon, also known as Maia, jumped from platform to platform, garnering a loyal fanbase with her self released music. Since her start in 2017, she’s released an EP and an album. Her latest release, the dawn & dusk double EP, features the track ‘ok on your own,’ which is part of dusk. Carly Rae Jepsen features on the track as well, which is crazy cool. The music video for this tune dropped earlier this week, and it’s incredible!
Check it out!
mxmtoon directed, shot, and edited the video herself, and it looks so visually stunning. The little doodles floating around as she goes about her day? Beautiful. TootyMcNooty did the animations, and they’re so cute! Her many talents shine through in this video. ‘ok on your own’ has such a calming, gentle vibe, reminding us that it’s ok to take a step back from helping others and taking care of yourself. It’s a friendly reminder that everyone can feel vulnerable and like they need some help and that it’s perfectly ok.
The ‘ok on your own’ music video is just a small sampling of mxmtoon’s talents. You can check out her previous EP plum blossom or her debut album, the masquerade. She’s already amassed well over half a billion streams, and she’s only going up from there. We can’t wait to see what comes next. And it’s not just music that she’s into! You can check out her daily podcast, 365 days with mxmtoon, where she takes you through the weird and interesting moments on that day in history.
