Born and raised in Connecticut Max Drazen returns with new emotional single ‘Five Three’ via Field Trip Recordings/Capitol Records
With a sense of wonder, Drazen sings, “All I need is you right now / When I’m too high you pull me down / And when I’m low you pick me off the ground / You’re the world to me and you’re just 5’3.” Rence, an artist/producer/songwriter who, like Drazen, has gained a reputation as a “genre disruptor,” produced the track. Drazen wrote “Five Three”with Rence, co-producer Alex Bilo and Andrew Stoelzing.
In the accompanying video, Drazen gives an exuberant live performance of the song in Malibu, CA, overlooking the ocean.
Max says: “‘Five Three’ is a song about the feeling of finding the person you’ve been looking for.” “My goal was to make the song feel as big and euphoric as possible in order to match that feeling. It took us months to finish— at one point we even rewrote the entire chorus and redid all the production. It was super important to me that the song fit in a world of euphoria and bliss.“
SweetyHigh noted, “If you’re familiar with the feeling of heartbreak, you need to listen to Max Drazen’s ‘Not Because I Loved You.’ His sinewy sound blends the likes of pop and R&B, resulting in something we think everyone will want to get behind.”
