On this track littleuniverses explores the notions of love and longing, writing about someone who idealizes the digital, online version of the person while still yearning for the real one, like a twisted take on Dorian Gray or something we'd read about in a Neil Gaiman short story.
Piano, slow tentative percussion and round bloops fill the damp chilly atmosphere with blue hues, and emotions soar high. Unreachable memories, the omnipresent pain and emotions that remain filling up the head, "The Virgin's Fountain" is what it feels like to lose something really good and coping with the pain of grief.
"The day I wrote the song, I was going through a tough breakup, was taking a break from school, and my best friend and I had just gotten into an argument. I felt like all outlets of social connection that I had were gone, and I truly didn't know what to do." Jaxyn Lethe
I was recalling a memory I had when I was recently out of a really bad break up and I was in the stage where I was ready to start a relationship with someone else and it was then that my ex started reaching out again and saying he wanted to try again, which made it hard to focus on this new love, So when I was writing the song I had this idea that it really does feel like I was being haunted by this person in that situation. It felt similarly like in a horror movie when you see someone get possessed and then that demon or spirit is controlling them and they are drawn to them, so that’s the idea." Maria Lane
"I write music that comes from a place of honesty and understanding. Music saved my life by making me feel understood and not alone for the first time, and that's the ultimate goal with my music: to help someone else the way it helped me." Micki XO
It's nothing out of the ordinary to reach for pen and paper to hash out artistic muse when you are feeling despair, but for Bunny Monroe, the vocalist, keyboardist, and lyricist of the duo, she couples it with self-deprecating dark humor on their latest single, "¡Get Up."
I wrote "don't speak" during a time when I was really struggling with my anxiety. I would run myself in circles about things that weren't all that big of a deal and it just took me out of it. I felt like my anxieties were keeping me from speaking or really conveying my feelings to people around me. So I decided to write a song about it. The entire chorus was freestyled and the rest I did write before recording but the song came really quickly.
These songs represent moments in my life. The key word being “MY” life. So, use these as a sort of choose your adventure or starting point for things that occur for your stories. I will outline the different themes and characters and anything else I felt while making these songs. But like I said these should be used only as an outline. Try to make your own story. In the end just feel and don’t think then your story and life comes. As a great Buddhist said here is my circle now draw your circle, now follow your own circle. -Language Games
"The End Of The Ride" is their newest single and it holds within a hypnotizing selection of warm synth melodies, minimal rhythmical textures, and soft ethereal vocals. The mixture between chaotic and harmonious elements follows the duo's finely established line of blending light with dark sensibilities. This exposes a mature sound, embellished with fine artistry.
Filled to the brim with absolute smoothness, "Supervillain" is full of joy. Giggles in the background, glowingly easy-going nature in both the lyrics and the instrumental side and shaped like a perfect indie-pop song, "Supervillain" is perfect for that little needed ego boost for listeners surrounded by such self-centered people, as well as a great tune to chillax to!
