Formed in 2017, 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. 
Following an impromptu jam with Mystery Jets frontman Blaine Harrison, the band was introduced to Jets producer Matthew Twaites who produced their debut EP, which includes the bluesy smash ‘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. The band’s hometown of St.Albans has played host to their biggest shows to date, having headlined numerous local festivals playing to crowds in excess of 10,000. 

The Maida Vales second EP produced by Pat Collier (Morcheeba, Primal Scream) was released in March 2020 with great expectation and a full touring schedule to bring their music to the masses. Yes. March 2020. Let’s say no more… This global wrinkle however merely stoked the fire and the band have been creatively at their most active, writing and honing new material for a string of releases starting now and stretching well into the new year.

For the group’s up and coming release ‘With You’ the band have turned their collective gaze towards a more predominant surf pop feel, exploring warm acoustic guitars, bigsby wobbles and seriously spooky harmonies. The new single drops November 19th 2021.

The bands powerful ‘larger than life’ stage presence has been compared to the exuberant energy of The Rolling Stones and more recent Libertines which has played its part in them recently securing a residency as house band at London’s Alexandra Palace. Since signing, they have supported Fontaines DC, DMA’s, Nadine Shah and Suede. 

For 2022, the band aim to serve as the perfect feel good antidote to all the global doom & gloom, with new music, a heavy touring schedule & their debut album all in the mix.
