London-based producer MAX RAD only has a few officially released songs to his name so far, but they are accomplished enough to have us excited about anything he has in store. His latest cut, 'Flesh & Blood' pushes that potential even further, by both engrossing and haunting us.

The young musician says of the track: “Flesh & Blood was written in Devon last Winter. I was walking and had a split second hallucination, thinking I saw someone that I couldn’t have walking along the shoreline. I got home and the song poured out, I wrote and produced it in a day.”

'Flesh & Blood' takes us immediately into that stunning moment, with Max crooning "I see you standing on the foreshore" before taking us further into his hallucinatory grief. Before the weight of the moment fully crushes, the track subtly shifts gears, moving into a slick synth-led groove with muted beatbox production. The downbeat atmosphere remains throughout 'Flesh & Blood', but the polychromatic layers of synths ensure that there is also a sense of wonderment, and in the end the track is cathartic and even uplifting.

MAX RAD is playing Camden Assembly on 25th April and Live at Leeds on 4th May. Follow him on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
