|FFO: Starset, Linkin Park, EvanescenceIs “pop metal” a thing? For Major Moment it is! Today, Boston’s “Major Moment” released their latest single “Toxic” ahead of their upcoming full-length, “The Pain That Makes Us Grow”.|
“The song was actually inspired by one of our followers on social media, who was being a little bit too impatient with our release schedule, saying things like “don’t you have other songs?” while we indeed had about an album’s worth of songs out and “how many times are you gonna post about this song” right after we just released a new single. Then he just disappeared. This made us think about the impact social media consumption trends can have on artists and creators, forcing them to produce as much content as frequently as possible to stay relevant and to grow. But is it done at the cost of compromising on quality, or even worse, creator’s mental health? Then we just wrote the song through the metaphor of being in a toxic romantic relationship, something almost everyone is familiar with. ”
