“It’s an anthem for self-destruction. It’s kind of like tongue and cheek. It’s talking about being excessive and living an unhealthy lifestyle and telling yourself it is a good decision and it’s actually the opposite,” he said.
His current single, The Other One is an example of Maurice at his best. The meaty guitar riffs underscore unapologetic lyrics that are drawn from his own life.
“It’s a personal song about an experience about life with someone else. The words are very literal. It’s about longing for someone and not being able to have them,” he said. “It’s anthemic synth rock, layered with synthesizers but has a blues rock feel. It’s synth blues.”
Maurice is preparing to release a video for his 4th single off The Arborist titled Poison Heart. He described the sad ballad as the “best song Taylor Swift didn’t write all year.”
After a summer of playing the festival circuit, writing and producing, Maurice has returned to the studio to record his next 2nd full length solo album entitled Retriever.
