I’m not usually a fan of highly distorted instrumentation, but I gotta say, Maxime’s shoe-gazey, distilled vocals on “2 a fault” make the track super likeable.
There’s a sweet nostalgia and purity to it, but the distortion and reverb add a very welcome edge, resulting in a track that is at once raw and honest. At just 2 minutes and 11 seconds of runtime, it’s a quickie; but like most quickies, it’s still a really fun experience with a surprising amount of depth that’ll play on your mind for a long time after it’s over.
Not bad going for a guy who writes, records, produces, and engineers all his music himself from his bedroom in Canada. I can’t wait to see what this wizard throws out next.
