Max Holley – ‘Midnight Fantasy’

Max Holley

‘Midnight Fantasy’ is the first release from singer/songwriter Max Holley.

Starting out as a mellow acoustic number, Max’s voice swells over the strong drumbeat. It’s a love song (or rather a love lost song), with a listen-again quality about it, clearly written from personal experience, with Max’s anguish, pain and hurt made clear in the lyrics. It’s not a bad first offering: the song is both lyrically and musically well done; a fine composition. Vocally Max reminds us a little of Troye Sivan, and his guitar playing more than amply illustrates his musical talent.

Max has been in the studio working on some more tracks, and if ‘Midnight Fantasy’ is anything to go by, we’re excited to hear them.

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
