Alt-pop legends Maximo Park have already sold 1.5 million albums, had 4 UK top 10 singles and are set to add to that with the release of Risk To Exist. The album is set for release on April 21 but the title track is set to drop on February 24th and has already had 1.5k views on youtube! The track is the Brit legends plea for humanity and solitude in response to the West’s responses to the migrant crisis.
From the get-go, the drums capture your attention and remain prominent throughout. As the vocals kick in, you’re greeted with a true indie track that will have you bobbing your head along and even wanting a dance. At times, it reminds me of an old-school cross between Oasis, Arctic Monkeys and Paolo Nutini. A strange mix but one that works well. The chorus is catchy and this is a track that I look forward to hearing more of and have had on repeat since it landed in my inbox.
