Are you a gamer? Are you a lover of music? If you happen to both (much like us), you will fall in love with this brand new project, thanks to a partnership between mxmtoon and Deck Nine Games/Square Enix. The young multi-producing artist will personify a version of the main character, Alex Chen, in the new installment of Life Is Strange. The episode Life Is Strange: True Colors is going to be out on September 10th.
Allying Graphics and Music
mxmtoon participates in this game as the singing voice of the character, Alex Chen. We don’t know too much yet, but we do know that Alex has the power of empathy, how cool is that? A mix of sci-fi and realness to resolve a mystery game, who’s in?
But because playing the character wasn’t enough, mxmtoon is also providing the soundtrack of Life Is Strange: True Colors. For this, she reworked many iconic songs. One of them is ‘Creep’ by Radiohead. You must be wondering…what? You probably heard other good covers of this old Brit-pop gem. Such as Rachel in Glee, Arlo Parks or G-Eazy featuring our beloved Pretty Little Liars’ Hanna, Ashley Benson. But mxmtoon gives this new rendition a new twist that we are in love with!
I wish I was special
‘Creep’ is a timeless classic. mxmtoon’s official video encapsulates the nostalgia, lurking around pieces of vinyl in a store as herself and as Alex Chen. While Radiohead’s version is rawer with fierce guitars, she made her interpretation with softness and soul. We don’t know if you know, but we love acoustic versions of iconic songs.
The Oakland-based singer dubs the drum loops at a slower pace than the original version and made it her own. She has this to say about the cover “….it’s nerve-wracking to make your own version of such an iconic and established song, but creep is a classic and I had so much fun being able to put my own spin on it.” Impossible not to fall in love with that dreamy cover, it’s such a classic sweet rendition!
Watch the official ‘Creep’ video below.
