Inspired & the Sleep: ‘Pool Guard’

What began as a solo project for songwriter Max Greenhalgh has since evolved into a 4 piece psychedelic indie pop outfit, filled out by the San Diegan boys Bryce Outcault (guitar and keys), Zach Elliot (drums), and Ryan Linvill (tenor sax). A mixture between Here We Go Magic, The Kinks and The Kooks, Inspired And The Sleep focus on rhythm, melody and vocal lines. Greenhalgh’s loop-based ideas are reworked through collaborative effort into full-band, groove-based pop tunes. Their new single “Pool Guard” shows the San Diego band’s refined approach to constructing tunes with enhanced production while hinting towards Greenhalgh’s previous lo-fi ponderings.
