“Tongue Tied is an edgy, dark exploration into my brain that dives into the idea of stress & release. A sexually driven, stress-relieving, tension building song that’s short and to the point.” - Mint Simon
The inspiration behind this song was me diving deeper and deeper into my truths. I’ve realized over the years that my sexual orientation and my gender are both extremely fluid and for a while it was a real challenge to understand it. Writing this song was a push to remind myself that this is something to be celebrated, and that I want to celebrate it with all my other non-box-fitting queers and that I don't need any one label to make my identity real. Liking some of everything, being some of everything - it only brings me joy at this point.
＂Used For Love is a love letter to myself, a reminder that there is nothing wrong with indulging in pleasure. It’s a love letter to all the lovers on the other end of the phone, and a love letter to desire. I can never do anything without tugging at my own heart strings. It has always been my intention to be fully myself, but over the last few years I realized how much I was hiding my identity. It took some major life decisions and a global pandemic to shake me into the person I’ve been thriving to be and I feel ready now more than ever to show the world who I really am and Used For Love is just the beginning of my new pop journey.＂
