Max Norton – “Nothing In This World”


London-based artist Max Norton engages with an emotive rock sound on “Nothing In This World,” emitting an adoration for the power of love and its life-changing qualities. The multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer excels with a stirring sound on this track and across his debut EP, Each One Is A Movie. “Someone mentioned the world needed a love song, so I wrote this one and it was also the last song I recorded for my EP,” Norton explains.

“All my life, I’ve been searching for you,” a weary vocal presence consumes, amidst jangling guitar reflections. The vocals rise in emotion alongside an added, peppy guitar line that drives into a cathartic “back to you,” bridge. The ensuing “nothing in this world,” refrain proves replay-inducing in its emotive vocals and layered guitar-led intensity. There’s a celebratory tone in the “day I found you,” exultation — reveling in there only being one now, rendering the universe now unable “to turn blue, now that the stars come from you.” The result is a smitten rock success from Norton.

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

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
