LA-based singer-songwriter MORGXN returns with "How Do You Hold What Hurts," an emotional ballad contemplating heartache and stasis.
"How Do You Hold What Hurts" was inspired by how 2020 tested and divided us. Through an unprecedented pandemic and political unrest across the globe, MORGXN sings the lyrics "how do you hold what hurts?", begging the question – how can we start to heal?
"This song might be about missing someone or it might be about the missing of some specific memory," explains MORGXN. "In the beginning there was this unity of the moment, a staggering pause on everything. Something we were all experiencing, but now there is so much division and unrest and confusion."
The world according to MORGXN is one where traditional boundaries do not exist. In June of 2020, MORGXN released the single "WONDER." The first single hit over 2.3 million streams on Spotify with continued growth, culminating in 50 MILLION global streams to date. The song has also gone viral on Tiktok, with over 5,000 videos using the track culminating in 25 million views across the social media app.
"PUMP THE BREAK," MORGXN's second single of 2020, continues the internal conversation with self-assurance and promise. In November of 2020, MORGXN released a new remix EP, WONDER [reimagined], collaborating with some of his favourite artists and friends, including PVRIS, Jagwar Twin, and Smallpools to breathe new life into "WONDER."
