Best known for his role in London-based lo-fi loving indie outfit Yuck, Max Bloom is stepping out on his own, and releasing his debut solo album, Perfume, on April 24.
Ahead of that, Bloom has shared a new single lifted from his debut called ‘Thinking ‘Bout You’. Shifting away from distorted guitars and ’90s inspired lo-fi fuzz that marked his work with Yuck, ‘Thinking ‘Bout You’ is a bright and uplifting slice of joyous pop – made all the more alluring (and fun) by the triumphant bursts of brass that illuminate the guitar bop and power-pop punch. It is an unbelievably catchy jam filled with sinuous melodies and adorned with huge hooks, ones you could hang your hat on. If you need cheering up, this is the right job for you.
‘Thinking ‘Bout You” is out now and Max Bloom’s debut is expected on 24 April via Anniversary.
