Wage Slave comes from Psychic Shakes’ upcoming second EP Unsaid. It is the solo project of Max McLellan and despite the subject matter – the song laments the monotony and boredom of doing a low paid hospitality job in your early twenties – is a delightful excursion into woozy surf-pop, with just the right amount of indie jangle topping.
Drunk and scrolling through indeed today
There’s only kitchen work and shitty pay
I don’t just wanna end up poor when I turn grey
