An actor by day, Emile Hirsch sheds his first name for his musical creation. Hirsch is a dark, synth-laced mask he dons, permitting him to creep and crawl through pop’s shadowy underbelly. “My Favorite Motive” snaps his heartstrings as a way to cope and heal. “I want to let go but you won’t leave me alone,” he sings. He drops to his knees, begging to be uncaged from a relationship, and his pain soaks completely through the paper.
