Getting To Know... Breakfast For Dinner

Following on from a string of bright and uplifting offerings over the last few years, New York-based trio Breakfast For Dinner are back once again to deliver their latest anthem 'Say'.

Channelling the bold and soaring aesthetic of acts like The 1975 and Pale Waves, 'Say' sees the band return in fine form. Filled with shimmering tones, vibrant production, and some killer hooks layered throughout, this lot certainly seem destined for big things on the horizon.

So with the new single available now, we sat down with Max from the group to find out more about his origins and what has influenced him over the years.


What was the first instrument you fell in love with?

I remember listening to my dad play tunes on his guitar when I was little and being so intrigued; I think that is what made me fall in love with music.

What kind of music did you love when you were younger?

We have all been obsessed with pop music since We were young! big fans of mainstream pop artists like Lady Gaga and P!NK. On the contrary, my father played a lot of The Beatles and Bob Dylan around me that I learned to love just as much.

What was the first album you remember owning?

Bob Dylan - Blonde on Blonde.

What is the one song you wished you could have written yourself?

Television Romance by Pale Waves.

Do you have any habits or rituals you go through when trying to write new music?

We tend to strip the song down to its raw form and if it translates well, that’s how we know it’s a bop!

Who are your favourite artists you have found yourself listening to at the moment?

Now Now, Holly Humberstone, Nightly.

If you could open a show for anyone in the world, who would it be?

Definitely one of our favorite artists, MUNA, The Aces, Pale Waves.

What do you find is the most rewarding part about being a musician?

The cathartic feeling we get every time we perform our music.

And what is the most frustrating part?

Emails for sure lol!

And what is the best piece of advice you have received as a musician?

I think the best piece of advice we’ve been given so far is the simplest but most meaningful, which is to never give up on ourselves.
