“It sounds a bit like if Ace Frehley and Siouxsie Sioux jammed with The Doors at a late- night after party in a small and damp bedsit in London, if you know what I mean.”

Swedish four piece MaidaVale create a reckless, psychedelic rock that consistently breaks new ground and diverges from what’s expected.
After first emerging on the live rock scene in 2014, their 2016 debut album Tales of the Wicked West was received with open arms and launched them as one of the most promising new bands and gave them a busy schedule touring Europe the next year.
On their second album, released in early 2018, the band followed up with an even more experimental and dynamic sound that confirmed their place on the psych rock scene. Madness Is Too Pure was well received amongst both critics and fans for it’s bold and innovative take on the genre, and the bands’ live shows are constantly praised for its musicality and electric connection between musicians and audience.
