margø – too much
margø is a Canadian singer-songwriter with a unique ability for brave sonic arrangements. New single, ‘too much’, is a bold electronic-pop fusion. Of the track, she says, “‘too much’ is about being unnecessarily hard on yourself. Around the time I wrote this song I was really struggling with social media – and the way it made me compare my self-image and my life to the perfectly curated lives of others. I realized that I was overthinking and putting too much pressure on myself to achieve an impossible standard that social media promotes. This song is a reminder that it’s okay to have imperfections, it’s normal to not always have it all together, and most importantly – a reminder to be kind to yourself”
