Newcomer mxmtoon releases her most tear-jerking folk-pop ditty to date in the shape of ‘prom dress’. Demonstrating a candid way of detailing the difficulties faced through modern relationships on last year’s plum blossom EP, this is another brilliant piece of sad-pop. The chorus is still led by a simple string yet new elements of hand claps and shining piano keys elevate Maia’s nonchalant vocal to new levels.

The hook of “I’d be the prom queen if crying was a contest” is simultaneously heartbreaking and incredibly cute. After racking up tens of millions of streams on her back catalogue, mxmtoon’s stage name is going to appearing far more frequently in 2019 as she continues to deliver relatable, infectious hook-led pop that speaks to millennials and more.
