The song starts off with a poppy flute and strong beat. In comes Max's vocals, crystal clear and clean-cut. This breezy song encapsulates a topic that we can all relate to: moving past things that may hold you down, hence his lyrics "escape, not sink, with you." As sobering as the topic of the song may be, the instrumentals lend a carefree and light-hearted feel, perhaps for the sake of balance. I'm always thoroughly impressed and entranced by Max's eccentric approach to his instrumentation and execution.
Inspired & The Sleep deserves as much recognition as possible. This one-man band has the ambition and creativity necessary to prop himself up above today's overly-saturated music world.
