Cerulean 'Last Night’ has the sort of witty winding lyrics I like to write, but ’Suddenly’ is sonically stand-out. Local Eastleigh lad Max's training - both formal at BIMM, and being in music town Brighton - really show through in quality here. Great to have Psychic Shakes back! N.B. final track is basically instrumental. Favorite track: Last Night.

about

Since its inception, Psychic Shakes, the solo project of Brighton-based artist Max McLellan, has transported listeners with easy going, melodically engaging hooks that drift through the subconscious. Far away vocals, downtempo beats, washed out 7th chords and lyrical vulnerability swirl for a sound evocative of The Drums, Beach Fossils and Men I Trust.

Now, Psychic Shakes is releasing the "Unsaid" EP out via Good Eye Records.

The EP is conversational; a cathartic monologue, an attempt to unlock the internal conversations people have with themselves. McLellan finds a release across its five-tracks, but it’s not a mournful one - it’s transgressive in a positive way.

“I’ve always struggled to write lyrics, I never want to reveal too much,” McLellan shares. “Part of the reason I wasn’t creating anything for three years was because I was stuck in a constant loop of self-doubt. A lot has happened in my personal life in that time that has challenged me. I don’t really like going into detail about things that bother me. But if you don’t talk about your problems, you end up doing yourself more harm than your pride is worth.”
