The Maias, a friendly neighbourhood indie pop duo from Nottinghamshire, England have been writing songs in lockdown. Comprising of Matt Bulmer and Eva Lightfoot the pair have been writing and recording bops in their spare room all summer. Drawing inspiration from Fickle Friends and Darwin Deez their fresh first Single ‘Constantine’ transports you someplace sunny.

The duo’s latest single ‘Dance’ has everything you would want to hear from an instant memorable summer anthem, the feeling of dancing on a beach somewhere sunny and just enjoying life. The combination of vocals with the duo’s unique sound works well to create a catchy track which you will instantly fall in love with and will be playing on repeat.

The music has lots of different things thrown into it, yet all together creates a great sound. From the upbeat temp to the vocals and sound there is nothing I don’t love about this track which you can tell instantly has been put together with so much care and attention to detail, for me this really is the perfect summer anthem.

A great summer anthem which would be ideal to listen to on a beach somewhere on holiday which I feel we are all missing at the moment but this track brings back a big of that holiday feel.
