Shares Video For New Single ‘Touchdown’ – Watch HERE

Screen Memories Out This Friday On Ribbon Music

‘Touchdown’ video still

“On ‘Screen Memories,’ he gives us synths with the glow of an old TV screen, New Order bass lines (minus the exuberance), and lyrics ranging from the deftly ominous (‘It’s written on the walls of silence’) to the simply gratuitous (‘Your pets are gonna die’).” – New York Times

“His new song offered from it [Screen Memories], “Teenage Witch,” is nostalgic without being overly sentimental, suggesting a tender side to Maus as he excavates his teenage self.” – Pitchfork

“majestically brooding synth-pop” – Gorilla vs Bear

“The introverted composer is known for his body-flailing one-man shows and highbrow cuts of lo-fi pop that sounds like John Carpenter doing New Wave.” – New York Magazine

This Friday October 27thJohn Maus will release his fourth album, first in six years, the highly anticipated Screen Memories. The album was announced with single ‘The Combine’, a sweeping and swirling apocalyptic anthem and followed by the nostalgic and soaring ‘Teenage Witch.’ Today, Maus is excited to share a third glimpse at the upcoming album with the Jennifer Juniper Stratford (Telefantasy Studios) directed video for ‘Touchdown.’
