Cut Worms Releases New Single, “Every Once In A While” b/w “The Golden Sky”

Cut Worms, moniker of Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter and multi-disciplined visual artist Max Clarke, releases a new single/lyrics video, “Every Once In A While” b/w “The Golden Sky,” off his forthcoming double album, Nobody Lives Here Anymore, out October 9th on Jagjaguwar. It follows a slew of previously released tracks and videos – “Sold My Soul,” “God Bless The Day,” “Unnatural Disaster,” “Baby Come On,” and “Castle in the Clouds.” “Every Once In A While” was written right before Clarke’s second studio recording session, and is rich with upbeat guitar, plucking bass, and his resounding voice. “We did a few takes and used probably the 4th or 5th one with no punch ins or anything,” says Clarke. “I like the immediacy of it. It came out pretty much exactly how I wanted it. Then later I had Caroline do some backing vocals for one of the parts she came up with and I think it’s really great.

The accompanying b-side, “The Golden Sky,” is quietly dreamy. It puts Clarke’s voice at the forefront and backs it with slightly melancholy pedal steel. “I was trying to create a sort of atmospheric track with the overdubs on this one,” explains Clarke. “It also has some lyrics that are important though I think. The thing about having to rob your fellow man/woman/person in order to be alright yourself—that’s the main part you’re supposed to get by listening to it.” The song’s artwork and lyric videos are inspired by the 45 label art for Jim Ford’s “Dr. Handy’s Dandy Candy.”
