• maybeshewill I Was Here for a Moment, Then I Was Gone (LP, £10.95)

    label: Function

    Formed in 2005, instrumental 4 piece Maybeshewill have been quietly building an significant worldwide fanbase. Their first two albums received widespread critical acclaim including glowing reviews and coverage from Kerrang, RockSound, Drowned In Sound and BBC Radio 1. The new album is intended as the soundtrack to an as yet unimagined film; widescreen cinematic highs and haunting moments of quiet played off against intense, almost brutally pounding guitars. They've maintained an intense touring schedule that has seen them play sold out shows across the UK, Europe, Russia and Japan and festival slots at 2000trees, Summer Sundae, Truck, Dot To Dot, Off The Cuff, Dunk! and countless others. In September 2010 they released the first single from the album, entitled 'To The Skies From A Hillside' on Nottingham's Field Records before departing their safe home for the previous five years for fresh ears and a new approach at London's Function Records for the second single 'Critical Distance' in March 2011. With glowing press for both singles and sold out shows across the UK, Europe, Russia and Japan under their belt, they've never been more confident in the year ahead. ‘I was here for a moment, then I was gone’ is released in the UK on 6th June . "They’ve the potential to become a domestic instrumental act that truly matters" ― Drowned In Sound // "Most bands couldn't juggle the collective noise of Mogwai and Glassjaw without exploding...
