We’re finally able to enjoy rising (the deluxe), and we’re so emotional after listening to ‘plastic pony!’ Maia (aka mxmtoon) makes us think about how fast time flies with her new track, and we just can’t help but cry (in a cool and collected way). We’re so thankful to enjoy the vulnerability of this talented songwriter. Let’s get into why this thoughtful song is one of our favorite mxmtoon tracks!
Like Maia has said above, ‘plastic pony’ is a track that will make you reevaluate your entire existence. We were just designing our fairytale a second ago! How have we grown up so fast? We miss being able to care about the tiny things that used to make us happy when we were younger, like playing with our favorite toys or getting some cotton candy from the county’s fair. These deep but relatable feelings are a signature of mxmtoon‘s music. These themes deserve more recognition in the songs that we listen to on a daily basis.
Our favorite lyrics from ‘plastic pony’ include the realization that we’re growing up, explaining how “the ride is now winding down, the music is fading slowly, I gotta go find myself, say goodbye to my plastic pony.” We love how Maia has played with the theme park references, as they describe how the magic can fade away as we grow up. We also love how the track ends abruptly, waking us from our reminiscent moment. It’s so well-crafted!
The visualizer for the track shows mxmtoon looking away from a carousel, fitting perfectly with ‘plastic pony’ and its overall message. Who would have thought that a plastic horse would make us be in our feels?
Maia will perform in Australia, the UK, and France next month. We can’t wait to see how the crowd makes ‘plastic pony’ become even more meaningful! You can get your tickets to see mxmtoon by clicking here.
