Taking their cues from the likes of Bleachers, A R I Z O N A, and MUNA, Maple St, which is made up of queer high-school sweethearts Alyssa Wilkens and Jillian Allen, write songs straight out of a coming of age film, packed with quirky lyrics and nostalgic synths.
Creating 1980s, dancing in the kitchen anthems, Love Me Less? starts out with soft, clean vocals and indie-pop backing instrumentals. allowing the heart-breaking lyrics their deserved spotlight. Somewhere between heartbreak and a love song, the track is written based on their own experiences.
Speaking more on this, Maple St explained: ““Love Me Less? is about the moment in a relationship when the honeymoon goggles fade and you’re forced to face the real versions of each other; usually, the time when you find yourself asking questions like, “do you love me a little bit less than when we first met?
‘Love Me Less?’ challenges the idea that a song is either a heartbreak song or a love song, it is what you make it.”
Love Me Less? and other songs can be listened to on Spotify or their Youtube channel.
