mxmtoon, aka Maia, waltzes with her past and future self in new video “fever dream,” where she lets us luxuriate in the cusp between imagination and memory through woozy arrangement of guitars and synths. Maia’s choreography has a hypnotic haze to it that channel both her playfulness and growth as an artist and dancer:

Regarding the video, the gal shared: “From the start I knew that I wanted “fever dream” to have a dance based music video! Dance has always been a hugely important part of my life, and to finally make a song that felt like it could exist in another creative world that I grew up involved in was utterly exciting. We wanted to work with the themes of the single to make a video that exemplifies the nostalgia the lyrics evoke but also the courage to move forward. This project was so much fun for me to work on, and the amazing crew involved couldn’t have done a better job.”

Director/choreographer Erin Murray shared: “This video is a dawn to dusk dance between Maia, her memories of her past, and her expectations for her future. I wanted to capture the genuine exuberance of the song while alluding to the ways nostalgia and expectation color our present. Working with Maia was an absolute pleasure, and I hope people feel as good watching this video as we felt making it!”

mxmtoon is currently working on a pair of back-to-back EPs and will be hitting the road for her dawn & dusk tour this summer:
