“I just wanna be loved,” crows Francisco Martin. It’s a soul-wrenching refrain he repeats, vaulting between manic episodes. “Narcissist” anchors his new EP, Manic, across which he explores life in all its bursting shades and neons. If I don’t make it then put me in a casket,” he asserts. “I’d rather be dead than a little over average.” The weight of social media and constantly connected has fried his body, sending him into frequent spirals to be liked by everyone online. He later admits that everything he does is just “for the mentions.”
