Cut Worms is the nom de plume of songwriter Max Clarke, whose debut LP “Hollow Ground” will seduce you right off the bat with its sparkling opening track, “How It Can Be.” With his intimate indie voice and facility for instantly memorable melodies and guitar lines, Clarke conjures a kind of garage-tested Everly Brothers, reminiscent of early Shins, with breezy pop ballads just tart enough to soundtrack lonesome summer days. Hollow Ground was recorded in the L.A. home studio of Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado, and in New York with Jason Finkel at Gary’s Electric. Check out the animated video for “Don’t Want To Say Good-bye,” and prepare to hum it for the rest of the day.

Brooklyn singer-songwriter Max Clarke relocated from Chicago to New York City in October 2015 and wasted no time breaking into the music scene with the release of his EP Alien Sounds in 2017. Listening to his unique style was like opening a time capsule from the ’60s and ’70s, and we were immediately hooked. Cut Worms creates a vintage ambiance that lowlights Max Clarkes’ bright and buoyant performance.

Cut Worms a carefree, wholesome sunniness that beckons to mind The Beach Boys gives Cut Worms a retro sound you didn’t know you’ve been missing.  Beatles-esque vocals, adding to the thrifty aesthetic. Cut Worms has flawlessly managed to capture the lo-fi nostalgia of a youthful counterculture, and we can’t wait to keep travelling time through his music. His full-length LP is scheduled for a May 2018 release and you can catch him on tour.
