Mau From Nowhere  – Dogtail

In his new song named “dogtail”, to reflect the action of a dog chasing its tail round and round in circles, as miscommunications in a relationship can feel, mau from nowhere vents his frustrations that build up between partners – either post or during their time together – where neither party can concede. In the heat of a repetitive argument, it can feel close to asphyxiation, being at odds with one another and no resolution in sight.

Artquake – Escape 

ESCAPE describes an undying desire to move out of a state of depression, anxiety and inner turmoil. According to art quake, he grew from a fearless high achieving child to an adult lost in his own shadow. “I slumped into a mental space of emptiness where I was unable to be myself. This for a fact runs me off my track and eventually never achieves my full potential”. On a morale scale, ESCAPE teaches resilience and will to survive in situations where we have little to no control over circumstances.
