The latest single from the ARIA Hall of Fame inductees, “The Hypnogogue” is a swirling, textural epic that captures the band’s trademark psychedelia-tinged post-punk dreampop and imbues it a modern sensibility that’s heightened by a mix from Darrell Thorpe (Radiohead, Air, Beck). “The song is about Eros Zeta the biggest rock star of 2054 who has traveled from his home in Antarctica (against his manager’s advice) to use the Hypnogogue to help him revive his flagging fortunes,” he continues, fleshing out the song’s science fiction storyline. “In the midst of the toxic process, he also falls in love with Sun Kim and it all ends tragically (of course…as these thing often do).”

Nashville-based, Pop/Soul Singer/Songwriter Max Boyle Makes Waves on Season 17 of The Voice and Announces Sexy and Subdued Track via Wonderland
Boyle states,” It’s about how sometimes we can get hooked on to people we know are bad for us, yet we succumb to going back to them anyways because we like the feel of being with someone, not being alone, the highs that can come with it even if there are a lot of lows. Basically it’s how we can get addicted to someone we know isn’t good for our overall well-being, but just like taking a drug, we enjoy the highs and still end up craving that person.”

The one constant were the hundreds of yuccas, many in bloom, that lined the road, seen as dots in the expanse past my window.”
