maxime. – ik it

Last year’s debut album from maxime. garnered 3.8m streams, and it’s great to see that the Canadian alt-pop wonder-kid hasn’t stopped working since.

This infectiously quirky release is taken from his next project, the upcoming 15-track album ‘cerulean’ which is due for release later this year.

“I wanted change in my life, and I reflected that a bit through the music I was making. Over the course of the album, I started getting more comfortable singing, and although the album is not in chronological order, it’s easy to hear in some of the tracks when I become a bit more confident. This past year has been a very exciting one for me. Lots of ups and lots of downs, but the music has always been an up or me. Something I always go back to when I get that sinking feeling in my chest. And then when I listen back to some songs, it’s a cool reminder to myself that I got over these things that at first felt like huge problems. Now I’m already really excited to get started on the next project.”

New Music: maxime.

This starts a little minimal and abrasive, but somehow turns into a warm and melancholic sound which is so unique and charming. It won’t be to everyone’s taste, but should be appreciated for its character.
