Art is everywhere: inthe shape we make out of a napkin while waiting for our coee to arrive, in the text we send to afriend in need, in the beat we make on the steering wheel while stuck at a red light.

Laundromat was created in what Mayo describes as their first stable living situation, away fromdifficult flatmates, tense surroundings, and abysmal landlords. As an artist who writes, records,and produces all of their music at home, the security of their current place allowed their ideas toblossom. Writing soon became a daily practice, and rather than laboring over each song like theyhad previously末some songs on previous records were months and months in themaking末Mayo found themselves drawn to the spark of what had created the initial idea in the first place.
