With lyrics like “I got a boring apartment, and all of the drugs / I’m fucking dangerous, I get what I want,” McKenna delves into themes of rebellion and self-expression.

‘Mulholland’s Dinner and Wine’ was written in collaboration with Gianluca Buccellati and tells the story of a cartoonish criminal duo.
