Tower, this is Maryland requesting a flyby.
Maryland is a power pop band from Vigo, Galicia, Spain. They have been struggling to get their musical project for light years. With a smashing guitar sound, they practice the noble art of building pop songs decorated with all the power their amps can fire. Last Thursday they "attacked" Costello Club in Madrid. As part of their Spanish "Los Años Muertos" tour, they presented their show just before 10,30 pm. The sold-out audience was eager to get their power pop dose and we definitely got it. Starting with their former hits in English, they cleverly mixed "Surprise", "Get Cold Feet" and LAM. The last album, which is a massive collection of energetic hits in Spanish, feels especially comfortable when played live. All the stories behind the lyrics, the electricity of the emotions kept in them and the catchy choruses explode when Álex, Pablo, Pati, Arturo and Rubén defend their compositions in a concert. I fell in love with them abo
