Max Gardener was college bound when he wrote parts of his upcoming debut record, which was partly inspired by the excitement and uncertainties of leaving home for the first time. A joint release between Citrus City Records and Sports Day Records, the writing process for Memory Lounge was fueled by Gardener’s “dreams and anxieties,” with the routines of getting used to a new abode and a new city.
Written during the move from Long Beach, CA to San Francisco, CA, “Get Lost” is tingly bedroom anthem for those who won’t take the plunge. Moving to a brand new city himself, Gardener embraces spontaneity, encouraging listeners to go out and get lost, over a proliferation of glistening guitars that bring up feelings of svelte nostalgia and easy-going dispositions. “Get Lost” is so damn infectious, you should feel weird if you aren’t moving after 15 seconds in.
