Mauvey runs through his new EP, track by track.
Documenting the ups and downs, ins and outs of love, Mauvey’s new EP ‘BEFORE THE ALBUM: a love letter to the moons of mars’ is out today (Friday, 4th November) via 604 Records.
“I’m preparing YOU for a world I’ve taken most of my life to build,” he explains. “Let’s start with the ‘love letter to the moons of Mars’. You can read it in full by reading the track list. The ‘love letter’ is a synopsis, the book (this EP) is 7 chapters (songs) long.
“This ‘love letter’, like most, is an audition. I won’t force you into my world, my stories, and my life. It’s your choice. If my ‘love letter’ sparks any intrigue, please listen to the songs like you would read a letter; from top to bottom.”
Give the release a listen below, and find out more about it straight from Mauvey himself, track by track.
A song written at the end about the beginning that could have been avoided if you just stayed in the here and now.
A song about doing whatever it takes to get their trust back.
It’s also a song answering the following question. If you were face to face with your younger self, how would the conversation go?
WE HAD THE TIME OF OUR LIVES TOGETHER
A song reminding yourself that even though you were the worst together, you had the time of your lives… together.
I STILL GET BUTTERFLIES FOR YOU IN MY TUMMY
A song realising that you’re dealing with a complete mystery, and despite never knowing their next move, you know they love you; they just show it their own way.
I DON’T WANNA TAKE IT SLOW
A song about starting again and desperately doing whatever it takes to not make the same mistakes a second time.
WHATCHU GONNA DO?
A song about two people having a tremendous amount of power over the other person. For good or for bad, neither person would choose it any other way.
YOU KNOW YOU’RE MY FAVOURITE
A song about when you’ve made up with them. A song reminding them that at the end of the day, they know they are your favourite, and you know you are their favourite.
