New Music: Maxwell Varey

Showcasing some of the finest sounds to come out of Northern England is Wigan’s Maxwell Varey, who is rapidly marking his name as one of the UK’s newest pop prospects.

Thanks to his perfected style of work (which fuses power-pop with elements of indie and rock), Varey has already picked up support from heavyweight outlets as noted as BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music, as well as NME and Clash magazines.

Varey’s anthemic new single ‘Sorry’ looks set to propel the musician’s name even further into the spotlight. Explaining the song’s meaning, he says:

“’Sorry’ is a song that on the surface level is written to seem like it’s about relatable and common romantic relationship issues. But, playfully, this is just a facade. I wanted to highlight how all relationships whether it’s family, friends or in a romantic context have very similar patterns. The song is about meaningless apologies but also how repeatedly forgiving someone to avoid conflict can be just as bad.”

The track serves as a follow-up to the artist’s debut release ‘Falling Down’, and was produced and written by Varey himself.
