Maxwell on "Death": "It was inspired by an intense experience with Ayahuasca (an ancient South American medicinal drug). The word Ayahuasca means “Death's Rope” in ancient Quechua, and some people experience the feeling of death during the ceremony. That is, death in what I would describe as the most glorious way you can imagine."
About Maxwell Powers: Maxwell Powers' career all started on night back in 2011, when he emerged from the ether with his keytar, determined to make something of himself. He proceeded to put out a series of YouTube videos combining synth-driven indie pop and no-budget filming to tell stories of life, love and the occasional existential crisis. The releases quickly garnered a cult-like following and have now been streamed over a million times.
"Death (It Feels Alright)" is the second single from Powers forthcoming 6 Things EP. While he recorded the entire album entirely in the corner of his living room, he collaborated with two veteran Bay Area Engineers/Producers: Mikael Eldridge (Tycho, DJ Shadow) and Sean Beresford (Run DMC, Third Eye Blind). The result is sonically rich tracks showing a diverse journey that is instantly catchy and rewards deeper listening.
