Maxine Ashley – Perpetual Nights

Bronx-born Maxine Ashley is a soulful & sassy 20-year-old misfit with a mesmerizing voice and a rebel spirit. She defies conventions with her adventurous music and style, loves the Smiths as much as Beyonce, and refuses to keep her big mouth shut! Her YouTube Channel has over 9,000,000 views of her spellbinding covers of R&B hits recorded in her bedroom. Maxine’s magnetic performances in the videos soon made fans and champions out of fellow artists like Pharrell Williams and Kerry “Krucial” Brothers, both of whom recorded with her. Maxine has traded her bedroom for the studios of New York and London where she’s developed a cosmopolitan mix of urban pop, R&B, electronic music, and soul that is undoubtedly from New York but ready for the world. Her guest appearance on Italian DJ Alex Gaudino’s single, “I’m in Love”, for Ministry of Sound was a smash hit with radio and club DJs across Europe. She also had a track handpicked by Lanvin to soundtrack the fashion label’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection. These were only the first steps of her international takeover. The buzz is about to get deafening this October with the release of Maxine’s debut, the Mood Swings EP presented by Krucial Noise whom she is signed to. The EP features production by Kerry “Krucial” Brothers as well as Pharrell Williams and a cover of the Portishead classic “Glory Box” which is also the first video from the EP. A seductive elegance comes off Maxine as she begins her soul-stirring rendition of the song in a grand foyer, the black and white film underscoring the splendor and a knowing look in Maxine’s eye. As the rhythm explodes, the screen bursts into color and Maxine takes the song to a different place no one else can create. She is the unexpected pop of color and emotion we didn’t know we needed until it’s there.

Maxine Ashley – Perpetual Nights Lyrics:
Blooming like a hybrid rose
Going places that nobody knows
Staring at the deep blue skies
(Uhu)
Nothing you would ever want to miss
Baby but this ignorance is bliss
Ever lasting paradise
(Uhu)
Chorus:
Perpetual high
Perpetual nights
Star gazing
Where on the moon blazing (2x)
Verse2:
Deeper than I think we’d ever know
But take the journey just for how it goes
Ride into eternal sunshine
So don’t you worry
It’s far from morning
Forever stuck in paradise
Chorus
Perpetual high
Perpetual nights
Star gazing
We’re on the moon blazing (2x)
Bridge:
Vibe with me, and maybe then you’ll take a ride with me
Lets reach beyond our lives can be into eternity
Chorus…
