Anyone who has been keeping up with my monthly Billboard Pride: Queer Necessities playlists should be well acquainted with morgxn by now. The rising LA-based singer-songwriter has been churning out tune after tune for quite some time now, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down.
This month, morgxn raises the stakes with “Carry The Weight” as he prepares for the release of his debut album Vital on May 18th! The track is an explosive, bombastic alt-pop juggernaut that morgxn describes as his “personal anthem.”
“It can get messy. It can make no sense. But at the core – we are all learning to combine our sensitive voice with the weight of our personal strength,” morgxn said in a statement. “‘carry the weight’ is my personal anthem. and it exists because I am constantly learning to stand up for myself and for my family and friends.”
The song comes accompanied by an equally impactful visual, directed by Moses Moreno, which paints a dramatic picture of morgxn literally battling his own demons and obstacles. Armed with a sledgehammer, morgxn smashes the windshield of a car that follows him home, symbolizing the “weight” that many bear in their individual journeys.
If this is just a taste of what lies ahead, we’re in for quite the treat – Get familiar!
