Ok, I finally got a chance to check out Maxwell’s video for his latest release, “Fistful of Tears”. I really like the concept behind this piece because its simplistic elegance has a way of subtle seduction which Maxwell is masterful at achieving. The aged TV stage, moving silhouettes and classic black and white shades recreated a surreal “Marvin Gaye” moment. For a split second, it appeared as if he was channeling the iconic crooner in this video. To better illustrate my point, here is Maxwell’s new video “Fistful of Tears” and Marvin Gaye’s performance of “Hitch Hike”. Tell me what you think?
