Mini Trees, the solo musical project of the Southern California born and Los Angeles based songwriter Lexi Vega, is pleased to announce her debut album, Always In Motion, will be released on September 17, 2021 via her new label home, Run For Cover Records.
The album is a glorious artist statement and is a collection of relatable indie-pop songs that acknowledge our collective anxiety about life’s improbability. “Over the course of the album I teeter-totter between having questions and wanting answers, but the resolution is to be okay with not knowing. I think I do find some acceptance along the way, but the album purposefully concludes with no real resolution.”
To celebrate the announcement, Vega has released “Carrying On,” the driving, upbeat follow up to her previous single, “Spring.” “I wrote ‘Carrying On’ in the middle of 2020 when I was out in the desert escaping the city and reflecting on the unsettling new way of life we all had to adopt during the pandemic,” muses Lexi. “Despite how in some ways life had begun to feel mundane again, there was a constant underlying fear that everything could unravel at any moment. In a sarcastic tone, the song questions my ability to hold it all together. We tried to capture this sentiment with the music video, displaying a character who is being led through the motions of day-to-day life, but beginning to recognize that something isn’t quite right.”
