MAXO delivers a vibrant and uplifting new single just in time for those sun-soaked summer days and nights. “Can’t Hold Me Back” epitomises mood-boosting, energising music. Perfect for when in need of a pick-me-up or for just soundtracking life’s happier moments, this uplifting, driving acoustic track is sure to enhance MAXO’s already stunning discography. Taking inspiration from indie-pop bands like One Republic, Imagine Dragons, The Script, Maroon 5, and Walk The Moon, “Can’t Hold Me Back” shares that same infectious energy that makes the contagious beats and smooth vocals impossible to resist.
MAXO decided to commit his entire life to music at a young age, and it’s definitely paying off. For a new upcoming artist in the early phases of his budding career, MAXO has already seen the success that some artists take a lifetime to experience. He has received worldwide commercial support from the likes of Triple J, Hit Network, KIIS, iHeartRadio, Nova, and ARN as well as featuring on Teen Mum UK, Sky Sports, and ESPN in the US. MAXO has been discovered on various Spotify playlists, most notably Spotify’s own New Alternative as well as algorithmic playlist additions. “Can’t Hold Me Back” has propelled the Canberra-based musician into more popularity with the song fast approaching 100k Spotify streams.
After realising songwriting and playing guitar was what ultimately brought him the most happiness and peace, MAXO’s goal has been to inspire that same serenity and motivation in his listeners. With a growing and dedicated fan base comprising a major 1.7 million streams on Spotify alone, it’s safe to say he is certainly doing so in full force. Spreading passion and positivity in equal measure to those fortunate enough to have discovered him, both MAXO and “Can’t Hold Me Back” are ones to watch for this summer.
