Mexx Heart Releases Emotional New Single “Pretend”
Indie singer/songwriter and recording artist Mexx Heart recently released her new single “Pretend” (produced by Zelle Zuzana). You can listen to the touching song HERE!
With lustrative lyrics like I just wanna close off this chapter, pretend I’m not still writing you letters filled with love, filled with sadness, filled with anger, penning her new single was a cathartic experience for Mexx.
“Starting over after a particularly emotionally draining era of your life can be one of the scariest, but comforting, parts,” Mexx explains. “It can be something as simple as buying a new couch because they’ve never sat in it or moving to a new place because they’ve never touched the walls. It’s not forgetting them, but erasing them in a way. It’s kind of beautiful.”
