- Finite World EP by Maia
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 16 April 2014
Huddersfield’s Maia seem to do tremendously well amongst folk-loving sorts yet as yet remain relatively unheard of above sea level. Their previous album was a technicolour smorgasboard of sounds veering a little too closely towards disco-folk at times yet a number of extremely strong psychedelic folk pop songs saw it through.
Onto this EP. If you aint a fan of the fey and the feathery you might as well look away now. Opener ‘Small High Whistle From a Bird’ is like Anthony Hegarty channeling Tyrannosaurus Rex era Marc Bolan. It is however quite unbelievably beautiful, just vocals and acoustic guitar and sounds like like its drifted down like a leaf caught on a summer breeze. ‘Milky Boy’ starts in similar fashion before exploding into a chorus that I can’t help but compare to Chris De Burgh’s ‘A Spaceman Came Travelling’. ‘Maisie’ showcases their unusual 60’s influenced pop stylings, one part early Bee Gees, one part Three O’ Clock, another the High Llamas. Closer ‘Finite World’ is equally good, again High Llamas spring to mind, a sweet summery treat of breezy acoustic pop.
Saccharine for sure but quite lovely. Check the packaging - its in a wooden box!
