What the press is saying about midwxst:

“Irresistible”The FADER

“Such a compelling voice”Pitchfork

“a maturation in sound and content, he finds solace in crafting ultra-vulnerable lyrics and music his peers can relate to”Complex

“He truly marches to the beat of his own drum“- XXL

20 year-old artist midwxst shares his debut album, E3 via Geffen Records. A co-executive produced album by midwxst and Sophie Gray, the project tells the story of a character named E3, narrated by midwxst. The album illustrates his recent internal challenges, but also underscores profound growth and maturity. The project release follows lead single “pretty girls” as well as the album’s last offering “warning.”

E3 is midwxst’s most immersive and conceptual experience yet. Having hunkered down in a studio in LA to ensure an organic writing process, midwxst’s latest project provides listeners a path forward through relationships, identity formation and the internet. Enlisting industry veterans and session musicians to soundtrack what he describes as a “fairytale gone wrong,” midwxst notes, “I just want people to understand that I went through a lot of the shit I am expressing on this album. And yeah I went through it, and yeah it hurt, but it made me grow and become who I am today. And I wouldn’t trade any of that pain or any of that loss for anything.” Compared to better luck next time, which is a brash breakup album through-and-through, E3 is an intricate painting of love in all its forms and evolutions.

Earlier this year midwxst also dropped “Tally” featuring South Florida’s Denzel Curry. midwxst’s steady stream of new music has been flowing since he emerged on the scene in 2020. Last year alone, the blossoming artist released two EPs including BACK IN ACTION 3.0 EP, which includes the standout track “223’s” feat. BabyTron, he also released his EP better luck next time. along with the stand-alone singles “mad,” “slide den,” and “sidelines.” midwxst also ventured on his first national run touring his music to venues across the country while collaborating with some of music’s brightest young peers including Yeat, Dro Kenji, KA$HDAMI and more.
