mxmtoon, a.k.a. Maia, combines two of her greatest passions: music and gaming, in this video. The artist felt an instant connection to Chen, a lesbian, 21-year-old Asian American singer who is clever and sensitive but frequently battles to navigate her own emotions, as a longstanding fan of the popular narrative adventure franchise with over 20 Million unique players over its lifespan.
The character’s similarity, which Maia describes as “eerily similar,” made the creative process go smoothly. “It was really fun,” she recalls. “I had a lot of liberty with what I wanted to write about.” The Life is Strange: True Colors EP includes a mxmtoon original, the emotional “in the darkness,” as well as two inspired renditions of Radiohead’s “Creep” and Violent Femmes’ “Blister in the Sun.”
You can check out the ‘in the darkness’ music video below.
More details can be found on the Life is Strange website. The True Colors EP may be streamed or purchased here. Life is Strange: True Colors is available now on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series S and X, Nintendo Switch and on PC.
