Max Marshall – Your Love Is Like

22-year-old Baltimore-born, London-based R&B singer Max Marshall‘s had quite the life so far. Not only did she used to hang out with legends such as Ashford & Simpson and Earth, Wind & Fire as a child while her dad drove them around on tour, she also once helped make Lady Gaga a hair sculpture made to look like a piano. Having studied fashion, Marshall briefly worked for French couture designer Charlie Le Mindu helping make wigs for clients such as Gaga. Having played the violin and viola in various orchestras as a teenager, Marshall soon moved onto the guitar and started recording music behind her parents’ backs. Then, on her eighteenth birthday, she moved to London by herself to focus fully on her music career. In October last year she released her debut EP Pressure, before guesting on drum’n’bass duo Matrix & Futurebound’s top 10 single, Control. While that song set her honeyed vocals in a slightly different context, the R&B throwback production of new single Your Love Is Like suits her like a glove. Over stuttering beats, crumpled vinyl samples and off-kilter electronic textures thrown in for good measure, it’s a classic-sounding love song about not being able to see straight when you find the right person. For the video – premiered here – Marshall returns to Baltimore, wandering around the neighbourhoods, getting people to do that thing where you make a heart with your hands.

Max Marshall – Your Love Is Like Lyrics:
You’ve got me wrapped up in your finger
Your touch, it’s magic and I’m feeling
Anything you need, you know I got it
Anything you want, yes, we can try it

Your love is like magic, I think
I think I’m going crazy
You got what I want, I think I
I’m gonna go take it

Your love is like magic, I think
I think I’m going crazy
You got what I want, I think I
I’m gonna go take it

Your love is like magic

Everywhere we go, I’m right beside you
Everlasting love, that’s what we got here
All I’ll ever need, I know you got it
All I’ll ever want, I know you’ll try it

Your love is like magic, I think
I think I’m going crazy
You got what I want, I think I
I’m gonna go take it

Your love is like magic, I think
I think I’m going crazy
You got what I want, I think I
I’m gonna go take it.
Your love is like magic.
