DOUBLE DRUM-PROPELLED LIVE ELECTRONICA STARS RETURN WITH HYPNOTIC NEW DIGITAL D/L SINGLE ‘SIONARA’
APRIL 20th 2015
“One of the most exciting instrumental groups around.” – London in Stereo
“Intricate rhythms, heady bass lines and squealing, kaleidoscopic synth lines mix into a hypnotic recipe…Maiians demand attention.” – The Line of Best Fit
Following their debut ‘Tokyo’ EP and two previous sold out headline shows, Oxford 5-piece Maiians return with new single ‘Sionara’ on April 20th.
The epic new track is a master class in musical mind control and filmic elegance. Building in pace piece by piece, ‘Sionara’ teeters on the edge of the storm before soaring up into a haze of post-rock guitar, ground-shaking beats and jagged synths. With musical nods to Four Tet, Holy Fuck and Mogwai, ‘Sionara’ somehow manages to be both hypnotic and ear-worm immediate all at once.
Since their conception in early 2014, Maiians have been turning heads with their double-drum propelled electronica and arresting live performances. The band are set to play three UK dates this April in support of the single:
April 17th – The Bullingdon, Oxford
April 18th – Are You Listening? Festival, Reading
April 21st – The Lexington, London
