Make Up Your Own Stories, feels a felicitous title. Less a departure and more a new chapter in Green’s adventure; the 11-track debut is a melding pot of musical inspiration that has been ruminating for over a decade, and crafted between studios, tours and rare quiet-moments. Revealing a more melodic side to Green’s musical personality, the vivacious debut is “honest and innocent and kinda searching for a feeling” as Green himself puts it. From the guitar loop hypnotism of track Autum and breathy haze of The Cut Girl (one of three tracks featuring newcomer vocalist Howard Hobbs) to the MPC hip-hop of new single 905 Users!, it’s a record inspired by everyone from Peter Gabriel to Icelandic icon Bjork. Compiling the album across a long time span, then working to turn them into a cohesive body of work was a surreal experience for Green: like looking back on old diary entries from across his entire adult life. Make Up Your Own Stories is a story that’s been 12 years in the making – and it’s a story that proves well worth the wait.
