Off of his ‘Narcoleptic Insomniac’ EP, MAX COLLIER, dutifully carries for us all of the stresses of life, love, and all the nitty gritty in between – off of our hurt shoulders. At least for a few moments with ‘Trouble Sleeping In’.
With iconic Orbison-like Americana/pop-rock vibes, the incandescent adoration for the things that are mundane, embrace our belonging hearts – recognizing once again how precious each minute could be.
“This song was written after a rough break up,” expanded Max, “and it addresses my inability to no wake up at 4-5am every morning and being forced to sit with my thoughts until the sun came up and I could actually do something to distract me. A lot of the writing for this song was done around 6am under the light of my laptop with my cheap 12-string guitar.”
With melodies that will melt the coldest of winters, ‘Trouble Sleeping In’ is a wrangling of self defiance, into a truce of sorts. And with that peach, you’re reset to focus, once again, looking at priorities and distractions, as they should be.
