Maida Rose is setting 2021 alight with their unique dream-pop stylings. Emerging from the Dutch seaside city called The Hague; the project is a vehicle for the songwriting partnership of Roos Meijer and Javièr den Leeuw. After spending the past five years writing and recording in the attic of Javièr’s childhood home, the band has finally started sharing their dream pop gems with the world. The duo’s personal experiences of adolescence provided the inspiration for this collection of songs. Their storytelling of love – old and new – and their expressions of depression and other worldly feelings, form a unique musical world. The album is self-produced and is being prepared for an early 2022 release.
If you are into Beach House and Cigarettes After Sex, you’re in for an absolute treat. Melancholic melodies flirt with groovy bass lines, allowing you to drift in the dreamy soundscapes they create.
Maida Rose’s catchy songs are sure to be stuck in your head for weeks.
On January 22 2021, Maida Rose released their debut single, ‘Harmony of Heartache’. The song received positive reviews from international music critics.
Their second single: ‘Where Do We Go’, will follow on March 19th. As explained by Maida Rose: ‘The song takes place at the end of a long-term relationship, where the realization starts to sink in that you need to rediscover who you are when not being with your partner anymore. It’s a phase of denial, after unsuccessful attempts to let your lover go.’ Though the sound and style of ‘Where Do We Go’ is a continuation from ‘Harmony of Heartache’, the band build upon their authenticity and identity, leaving us curious about what’s yet to come.
