maxime. commented on his track “wedgie” from the EP, saying:
The magic I felt the day I started this one is why I make music. Lyrically, this one is firmly in the complainer category, but more so about how personal growth can feel contractionary at times. 1 step forward 2 steps back type beat. I think I was sad when I wrote this, but I am happy it doesn’t sound like I was. This song is too fun to be sad while listening to it.
