Joey Maxwell has released his latest single and video, ‘too much’.
The follow-up to his 1 minute 31 slice of addictive, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it pop, ‘Leaves Blow Over’, he describes his new ‘un as “definitely the most personal song I have released.”
“It’s not easy for me to explore a more dejected part of my psyche,” the popster continues, “let alone write about it and share it with the world, a role which I think I’ve grown into as I have become more comfortable being a solo artist.
“‘too much’ explores the cyclical nature of life and death and everything that comes in between. For me, it plays on the idea that the most inane things are all part of a bigger picture – we’re tiny specks of dust in this universe, one minuscule part of something massive. I think part of that is realised as the song unravels. This world doesn’t owe me anything and it certainly doesn’t revolve around me. I can’t really think of a better example, but humans are like Venn diagrams, and the stuff you do solely in your part of the circle has a knock-on effect with the circles that you overlap with.
“That’s what this song is for me, it’s life-affirming and it’s grounding – it’s me making a choice to contribute and see the colour.”
