Max Bloom has laid out details for new album ‘Pedestrian’.
The songwriter previously fronted Yuck, while his own catalogue is full of daring twists and turns.
New solo record ‘Pedestrian’ is out on June 18th, and it marks a turn towards the introspective from the UK artist.
He comments: “I was contemplating a lot of things when I was trying to come up with the lyrical themes…”
The title song is online now, and it was born from Max listening to the initial instrumental on a loop, before contemplating the lyrics.
He says: “I listened to this instrumental a lot when I was out running, and I remember seeing the word ‘Pedestrian’ on a road sign. It made me contemplate what a pedestrian is, and what the word represents. As pedestrians, we’re all trapped in our own individual worlds but when something cataclysmic happens, we’re all brought together.”
“I think about death a lot, and I think about what humans are and whether we are the only intelligent life in the universe. So I guess this song explores both of those feelings at the same time.”
