Having toured with the likes of Tame Impala, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and Alvvays; London-based vocalist and guitarist Max Bloom, who was formally member of Yuck, is beginning to make his own mark on the music industry. Since his time touring with the aforementioned bands as part of Yuck, Max has no doubt been able to draw some valuable experiences from this time, along with elements from his personal past to begin creating his own music, giving him a space to fully reflect on and express himself. Thankfully, this has enabled him to take free-reign of his own sound and produce music that in no way needs to regard the pressures of past audiences. A part of this period of music making, Max is out with a new single which has finally been housed on the web after a period stasis within the confines of a hard drive.
“Call Me When It’s Over” takes the form of a slow and beautifully drawn out ballad that faces anxieties relating to being unable to let go of the past, along with what the future holds. Analogies of worn out clothes depict heart-wrenching images evoking feelings of melancholic reminiscence, as guitar strings strum to a heavy lull. One can really get a feel for Max Bloom exploring and dealing with events of dimmed pasts, and being able to get a glimpse into his processes and honest perspectives is an endearing, intimate experience.
