Bringing together hugely infectious refrains and buoyant punk-rock rhythms, rising UK pop-punkers Maypine set loose their eagerly awaited new EP, ‘In The Back Of My Mind’, today, 4th Aug through Disconnect Disconnect Records.
By taking inspiration from a variety of different artists, the aspiring tunesters have been encouraged by State Champs, Neck Deep, ROAM and Blink-182. Through digesting the fundamentals of these key influences, they have formed their own sounds, creating premium cuts that are both accessible and instantly engaging.
Hailing from Brighton, and formed in mid-2016, the band spent the summer months crafting their set and refining their live show in anticipation for their Winter UK tour. The shows were highly successful, leading the pop-punkers to being touted as ‘one of the most exciting new pop-punk bands in the UK’. The five-some have recently completed work on their debut EP, ‘In The Back Of My Mind’, with producer Ian Sadler (ROAM/Homebound). This impressive release is bursting with catchy hooks, emotive vocal lines and driving guitar parts. With the release of ‘In The Back Of My Mind’, alongside a UK tour with much revered Brit pop-punkers Better Than Never and Coast To Coast, this year is panning out to be a very eventful one.
