Read: A lesson on making a successful music career with your girlfriend


On the hunt for a new, fun, LGBTQI+ bop? Of course you are. On 13 March, Stateside pop duo Maple St returned with their latest track, Love Me Less?

The LA-based pair is comprised of childhood sweethearts Alyssa Wilkens and Jillian Allen, who have been creating music together since their teenage years. Inspired by artists such as MUNA, A R I Z O N A and Bleachers, the pair create music with “quirky lyrics” and “nostalgic synths”. 

Based on their own relationship experiences, Love Me Less? is an indie-pop track with clean-cut vocals and heart-breaking lyrics. It teeters on the fine line between being a story of heartbreak and being a love song, making it oh-so relatable and wonderfully honest. 

“Love Me Less? challenges the idea that a song is either a heartbreak song or a love song, it is what you make it,” the pair explained.

“[It’s] 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?’”

If Love Me Less? is anything to go by Maple St will be ones to watch in 2020. Let us know what you think @DIVAMagazine.
