A couple of years ago we were amazed by the soft tones of Oakland’s mxmtoon when we heard her EP Plum. The mixture of soft tones and melodies signaled that the artist was well on her way to something bigger. Now with a new stand alone single “fever dream,” it’s apparent that those bigger things are now and not in the future.
Opening with tones of nature, the track gets going quickly with a snappy pace. The vocals melt you as they come in and even go deep when they get doubled. The catchy stride of the song alongside a killer beat make what you hear memorable and difficult to shake. The video contains plenty of dance choreography to emote the song’s happy-go-lucky tone, with plenty of smiles and happy faces.
The video can be watched above or on YouTube. The song can be streamed on all streaming sites or purchased in all digital music stores. mxmtoon is on tour starting April 17 in Rotterdam, Netherlands at Motel Mozaique until June 27 in Jakarta, Indonesia at Istora Senyan. Her complete tour routing is accessible here.
