ARTIST: MAYPINE

TITLE: IN THE BACK OF MY MIND

LABEL: DISCONNECT DISCONNECT RECORDS

RATING: 3/10

 

I would love to describe this EP as a fresh, British take on pop-punk but in reality it is just another ten-a-penny quintet trying to be Neck Deep. The same jumpy, high pitched riffs and generic vocal whine pierce my eardrums and I picture the endless snapbacks and Nike skate shoes. That is Maypine. Penultimate track ‘Never Far Apart’ redeems a sliver of decency for the record, an acoustic driven ballad that hints at their being some actual talent and creativity in the band but I’m not convinced and I don’t think anyone else is either.

WORDS: DOMINIC MOFFITT
