LOVEDEMON is a mirror of Paul Maxwell’s own creative mania, which tiptoes between loving self-control and demonic self-torment. Upon moving to LA, Paul was working at a high-end restaurant where he’d come face to face with the promised glamour of LA. He would print off receipt paper and scribble as many notes as he could, writing all that came to mind. The lyrics of the album would ooze out in these moments, capturing the confinement and longing for freedom & identity.
Maxwell cites influence from his favourite childhood video games, SSX Tricky, GTA, Crazy Taxi, amongst others. The soundtracks imply an extreme nature however were made for recreation. It’s this contrast of chaotic good characteristics & light-hearted fun which Paul finds himself flirting between sonically.
