maxime. – “come undone” + “big, if true”


Tracks “come undone” and “big, if true” showcase the infectious, dynamic sound from maxime. — channeling both fuzzed-out alt-rock and hypnotic pop mystique. The tracks come via the Canadian artist’s third album, the life and death of a dog. An inviting bass-heavy rock appeal enamors on “come undone,” traversing into a mellow entrancement in the verses — “life is funny…” — that ascends into a replay-inducing title-touting refrain.

“big, if true” struts ta creative pop intrigue. Warming bass pulses continue here, this time set against a laid-back vocal yearning. Comforting synth tones and trickling guitars converge as the vocals fade, re-emerging alongside clanging acoustics into a soaring serenity. The track excels in its blissful pop atmospherics, and both of these are exemplary of the high-quality songwriting and production throughout the album, streaming in full below:

These tracks and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
