THE MAIDA VALES
“The Maida Vales musical roots lie in the infectiously catchy rhythms of the late Indie explosion as well as the traditional psych-pop sounds of the 1960's. The bands powerful 'larger than life' stage presence has been compared to the exuberant energy of The Rolling Stones and more recent Libertines.
Thanks to an impromptu jam with Mystery Jets frontman Blaine Harrison, the band was
introduced to Jets producer Matthew Twaites who went on to record and produce their debut EP including single 'Sunday Morning'.
The success of the EP saw the band tour extensively across the UK and Europe playing all manner of festivals, clubs, pubs and living rooms cementing their place as a ‘must-see’ band on the UK circuit.
'Everything In between' swiftly followed in March 2020. The Maida Vales second EP produced by Pat Collier (Morcheeba, Primal Scream). The group looked forward to a long UK tour which came to an abrupt end with the introduction of the infamous lockdown of 2020. This did not deter the lads but instead fuelled the fire the band needed to put pen to paper and start writing new material.
The bands single 'With You' followed which turned their collective gaze
towards a more predominant surf pop feel, exploring layered acoustic guitars, bigsby wobbles
and spooky harmonies.
2022 started with a boom as The Maida Vales released their new song 'Stereo'. The eerie '60's influenced banger is fresh, original but also reminiscent of the darker tones of The Doors & The Kinks. Recorded in Bristol, at Idles & Florence & The Machines 'Humm Studios' over 2 days of blood sweat & tears, Stereo was born. To celebrate the release, 'The Hawley Arms' Camden played host to the groups sold out launch party paving the way to a string of UK club shows to promote the record."
