Indie-pop superstar Allie X and rising queer pop star Mike Taveira join forces for a magical new track that's sure to find the sunrise. Taken off of Mike's forthcoming debut EP, Cut Velvet set to be released in early 2022, Sex for Breakfast is a dance-pop, synth-fueled upbeat gem that is bound to get your body moving!

Mike says about the song: “Sex for Breakfast was one of those lightning-in-a-bottle songs. The idea came to me after an intense morning with this guy I was head over heels for. We were essentially dating but kept pretending it was a fling. We ended up in this almost masochistic cat-and-mouse game, knowing we were so right together but both being too uncomfortable to admit it.”
