Los Angeles-based songwriter Max Leone continues to showcase his musical versatility on his latest single, the craziest thing i've ever done. The track is set to appear on the musicians forthcoming debut EP, Malleable, due out this year.
Conceptually exploring new love and falling for someone, the track fuses together Leone's signature brand of pop with contemporary alt-pop and R&B. The release is accompanied by a visual, which captures the emotions of the track framed within a high-speed money heist - both dangerous and ridiculous - but something we as humans subject ourselves to more than once.
"When we were writing the craziest thing I’ve ever done, lyrically we wanted it to capture all this insane, extravagant imagery and then juxtapose that with something we usually see as ordinary, which is love," Leone shares of the release. "The catch is that love IS the craziest thing we do. It’s painful and terrifying, and yet we put ourselves through it over and over again."
Throughout his debut EP, Leone tells his story of navigating a new city alone while chasing a potentially far-fetched dream. He explores themes of self-doubt, longing for anything familiar, and coping with ‘modern isolation’: keeping up appearances on social media while silently suffering.
