With their two drummers, intricate lines of post rock mashed with electronica and arresting live shows we were always likely to like Maiians, and following their debut Tokyo EP and a string of sold out headline shows, the Oxford five piece are back with a new single, Sionara.
Opening with these hazy synth lines, and scattering percussion, its given some melodic direction by the bass and guitar which mesh together as the music becomes increasingly complex, but never difficult to listen to. It’s like the first time in a big city, new things (in this case musically) coming at you from all directions. It continues to grow and build, with its individual parts gradually unfurling to reveal themselves funny, and create something beautiful.
