Indie-pop newcomer Maxwell Vary unveils groove-led new single ‘Psycho’

DIY artist Maxwell Varey reveals with vivid new release ‘Psycho’. Mixed by Adam Gorman at Pinhole Studios (Chloe Foy, Seafret), and mastered by Christian Wright (LCD Soundsystem, Radiohead, Coldplay) at Abbey Road Studios, the new release is a psychedelic offering with alt-pop sensibilities.

Drawing inspiration from the likes of Tame Impala, Tom Misch and Anderson Paak, the psych-tinged grooves and funky electro-rhythm will instantly steal your attention.

On the release, Maxwell shares, “‘Psycho’ is one of those tracks where I knew it would be an instant favourite of mine within minutes of its creation.

There’s honestly nothing more satisfying to me than that initial buzz and overwhelming feeling that strikes when I am able to express myself and make something that I’m proud of; I probably listened and danced to it a hundred times within the first month of writing it and to me that’s usually a really good sign.

Hopefully, listeners of the song will be able to relate to the emotions that I feel while jamming it loud in my car on a sunny night. It’s a song that makes you feel like the main character for sure.”

Lyrically, ‘Psycho’ is the product of Max’s fascination with how manipulative personalities can see even the darkest of personas able to win sympathy and love from an outsider.

‘Psycho’ may only be the second single from Maxwell Varey but it certainly paves the way for an exceptional career ahead for the alt-pop artist.
