Conversations About Her

Maxwell – Lake By The Ocean | Music Video

Maxwell 27.05.2016ANDREW


Maxwell has premiered the steamy music video for his fast-rising single, “Lake By The Ocean”. This is the first visual from Maxwell’s much-anticipated new album BlackSUMMERS’night, due out Friday, July 1, his first album in seven years and the second chapter of his musical trilogy that began with 2009’s BLACKsummers’night.


The song is very soulful, heartfelt and sensual. The guitar and piano are earnest, with clapping drums that lock everything in with its slight rattle. The middle section, if you will, is delicate and beautiful vocal harmony, before the instrumentation rises for a crescendo.


In terms of the music video, directed by Phillip Andelman, has a cinematic quality to it, given that the song does not start immediately. It seems to chronicle a woman endeavouring in life, doing things like collecting fresh water. She then spends time unwinding watching Maxwell perform at small venue, whose movements remind one of the late Ray Charles.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
