Maxi Curnow, a UK-based artist, is not only a producer and composer, but also a director, filmmaker, and mastering engineer. He builds music for the most part using computers and synthetic sounds in his mastering studio, “Horizon Mastering” but he is not an artist you can relegate to any one electronic sound. In fact, his music can be tagged as a mix of styles and genres such as post-rock, alternative rock, ambient, new age, experimental, and orchestral pop, some of them instrumental and imbued with a progressive feel.
His latest single, “Beautiful Shell”, showcases his stunning artistry, favoring melody, atmosphere, drone, and dissonance over technical competency or radio-friendly formats.
This track pulses with irresistible and feisty riffs and pounding drums, giving it that industrial feel with a classic fuzzy vibe. On the mic, Maxi balances smooth and aggressive, near-growling vocals according to the track’s intensity and rhythmic balance.

Like he sings in that memorable chorus, “It’s enough to be yourself”
