Every day we are faced with temptation both small and large. This is something M@Y understands and has woven into their single ‘Can’t Help Myself’. Using a powerful soundscape, they give in to temptation and unleash the emotions that follow. Through all this, they also bring the understanding that we are all human and can give into temptation regardless of how hard we try not to.
