Austin Max – “Heart Breaks the Same”


“Heart Breaks the Same” is a climactic new track from Austin Max, impressing a couple years back with debut single “As Leaders Fail to Lead.” The Los Angeles-based artist (originally hailing from Nashville) touts stellar production and songwriting again, with “Heart Breaks the Same” swelling from debonair rock to synth-laden hookiness.

The “my heart breaks the same,” chorus rouses with a suavely entrancing charm, melodically gripping with a nostalgic fervor. The lush synth pad around 02:45 ignites a lovely bridge that stands out as well, evolving into a hypnotically concluding refrain with scorching guitar additions. “Heart Breaks the Same” marks another success from Austin Max.

This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2022’ Spotify playlist.
