Is it possible to call The Maine underrated? The Tempe, Arizona, pop rock act has aggressively progressed their sound over the past 10 years, steadily evolving their fan base in the progress. Now, just a month away from their latest release, Lovely, Little, Lonely, the band has released a delicious new track titled “black butterflies & déjà vu”. Take a listen to the song below:
Fast-paced guitars accompany John O’Callaghan’s fierce delivery and prove once again that The Maine aren’t afraid to take chances. 2015’s American Candy found the band blending glossy pop rock with aggressive guitars and melody, while Lovely, Little, Lonely appears to be adding 80s elements to the mix as well.
It’s hard not to marvel at The Maine for taking the reigns after their major label fallout in 2011 and pushing ahead with the best music of their careers. Despite multiple hurdles, the band has refused to follow obvious trends and continue to be pop rock tastemakers in their own right.
