In a recent interview, Max Foreman told Zo Magazine that “Making a solo record was a plunge I wanted to take since at least as far back as 2011 when I bought my first drum machine. I would wake up early in the morning and create these rich electronic textures, but I had no idea how to incorporate it into a lyrical, songlike form… Creating an entire lyrical universe from scratch, as one does when making a solo record, posed the greatest challenge when I decided to move forward with the project. But I engaged with the process with a simple method: to write new material every day about what I was experiencing in the moment. I’d look back on the results, and if an idea worked, I’d try to run with it a little further the next time.” There are lots of insights in the interview, which can be found in full here along with embedded streams of the music.
Foreman’s EP, Underground, is at radio now!
