Max Blansjaar “Saturnia”

FOLLOW US:

Max Blansjaar was born in Amsterdam, raised in Oxford and recorded this début album, ‘False Comforts’ in Brooklyn. He first appeared on the Oxford scene in 2018, aged 15, promoting shows in all-ages venues and performing his playfully sincere lo-fi indie pop songs and releasing his early EPs through the Beanie Tapes label.

For his debut, the 21-year-old spent two weeks recording at Katie Von Schleicher’s home studio in Prospect Park. Here KVS and Nate Mendelsohn helped to expand the sonic horizons of Max’s elaborate and intricate demos. The result of the sessions are ten songs that feel somehow grounded in Brooklyn, Oxford, Amsterdam, or somewhere in between.

‘False Comforts,’ featuring the “Anna Madonna,” “Burning In Our Name,” and “Red Tiger” singles, is out now on vinyl, cassette and all digital platforms. Max will be touring across England in the summer.
