Plymouth-based Max McLellan, aka Psychic Shakes, brings us his latest single, “Home,” a hazy lo-fi indie jam that captures the conflicting pang of melancholy and warmth of love adeptly. 2022 was a pivotal year for Max that shaped his songwriting, he and his partner’s joyful discovery of impending parenthood led to a profound reevaluation of his artistry in a post-pandemic world. McLellan’s confessional songwriting bares fruit as he wrangles with this new identity and how that perspective tilt tints the world, revealing shades of life that were muted before. “Home” has a warm ennui driven perfectly with warbly guitar energy that exemplifies Max’s bittersweet revelation of missing your home when the world shifts beneath your feet, while always finding a haven with the partner you love.
