MAURITIA, Hull band on the rise, have just released yet another catchy indie tune. With a busy year, playing on the first ‘Made In Hull’ Sesh Cruise, supporting King No-One on multiple tour dates and headlining gigs at The Polar Bear, the support for the band is continuously growing. Following on from singles like ‘Tropical’ and ‘Skin’, it is unsurprising that ‘Living without You’ is set to be another well-received success for the four-piece.
‘Living without you’ is a feel-good, summery track, despite featuring the ever-growing theme in pop music of the confusing millennial relationship struggle. Again, this song is catchy, and it’s something you could easily dance and sing along to. The whirring synths and varied percussion turn this song from another indie pop track into something much more interesting. It’s not un-repetitive, but that’s not a bad thing here. People want to be able to sing along to a chorus and the clean production means the familiar vocals sit perfectly in the mix. Every aspect of the song is audible, highlighting the musicianship of each band member and skilled production.
MAURITIA are definitely a band to look out for, and if you’re into your indie pop and want another song stuck in your head, check out ‘Living without you’ and their other singles on Spotify. Having seen the band live a couple of times, supporting King No-One, I can say with certainty that their music takes the foreground in the making of a good night out. You can catch them headlining The Sesh at The Polar Bear on Tuesday 21st May. It’s bound to be a great night and, for all you students – it’s free
