Maxband 12-inch EP | Holm Front T-shirt

£20.00 / Sold Out

Bundles are back.

Maxband, a project featuring Parquet Courts drummer Max Savage, release their new EP ‘Top of the Stairs’ on Holm Front.

The New York band - completed by bassist/vocalist Patrick Smith (A Beacon School), drummer Eric Read and lead guitarist Tim Nelson - formed in Spring 2018 when the longtime friends decided it was time to finally start making music together.

After recording lo-fi debut offering ‘Perfect Strangers’ at their practice space in 2018 using nothing more than a four-track tape machine and handheld Tascam, Maxband enlisted producer Doug Schadt (Maggie Rogers, Ashe) and headed into the studio.

The five tracks on ‘Top of the Stairs’ see Savage step up from the drums to assume vocal and guitar duties. While his delivery will no doubt remind Parquet Courts fans of his brother Andrew, the contributions of co-vocalist Patrick Smith ensure Maxband are very much their own proposition.

“Exceedingly pretty post-punk with a metronomic pulse straight out of an early Strokes record” - Stereogum

“Savage’s vocals sound not unlike his brother Andrew’s vocals with Parquet Courts. A perfect balance between breezy and fervent” - Under the Radar Mag

“Delightfully direct” - So Young Magazine
