Inspired and the Sleep

Following last year’s release of the EP Eyelid Kid (a collection of darker dream-pop songs) hometown Indie Poppers Max Greenhalgh & Bryce Outcault are moving towards the light with new material embracing electronic explorations over an indie rock backbone.

The new material also mark’s the return to Greenhalgh’s roots of self-producing combining hi-fi elements from the live band with the experimental tendencies of bedroom recording.

Sweet Company is our jubilant ode to the feeling of belonging in relation to one’s memory. To me, the song represents the action of appreciating the good times you’ve spent in any sort of relationship regardless of when they occurred or how it might’ve ended. The verses depict a particular individual I was dating at the time, however the chorus speaks in generality of anyone from your past you’ve been close to. I see so many people cutting ties to past relationships and I feel like if that energy was spent being grateful for what they used to have, the world would be a better place.’
