Max Stern (Signals Midwest) solo

Max Stern, who told us about his new solo project in Pass The Mic 2019, has shared a video to "Water Tower." The song shows a range of influences, including indie projects with a singer-songwriter flourishes, such as The Weakerthans.


"I wanted to write a pretty positive song about the flickering moment upon waking, before you look at your phone, before you remember your responsibilities, before you wrap yourself in your identity that carries you through the day" Stern says of this new song. "What would it feel like to harness that feeling and to be able to control it?...It’s not a novel concept by any means, but I get really wrapped up in social media as the “comparison machine” and it tends to suck the joy out of a lot of what I do if I’m not careful."


Stern also plays with Signals Midwest, Meridian, and Timeshares. Watch the video after the jump.
