The Maida Vales
The doorway to the melodic world of Paul Littler, Joe Abraso, Matteo Cervellin and Alfio Caracciolo. Four North London based lads on a musical mission to fill your heads with melodic madness and musical genius!
The Maida Vales draw their musical influences from across Europe with band members deriving from as far afield as Milan and Sicily, Italy to St.Albans, England.
Their refreshing approach to music sees The Maida Vales avoid the usual suspect sounds that we've heard time and time again. Instead, the band favour the more eccentric tones and feel good numbers of the early Stones, Kinks, Ska Skanking Upsetters and the more recent, Dandy Warhols.
Paul’s lyrics explore the tremendous highs and the bottomless lows of a middle class musician living in the heart of the concrete jungle. Trials and tribulations, Love and loss, excess and madness wound together through beautiful melodies, raucous riffs, driving bass lines and powerhouse blues beats…oh yes and did we mention the Tequila?
The Maida Vales have been hailed as a 'breath of fresh air' in the current climate of guitar bands, which has paved the way to a string of high profile shows across the UK and Europe. All music graduates, The Maida Vales exercise a cool and quaint approach to song writing whilst maintaining the unexpected creative mind. With an eclectic melodic original set and a ‘balls out’ classic rock n roll covers set packed to the brim with musical goodness and raucous on stage energy, the lads have it covered!
