Maylen- The Awakening EP
Record Label: Unsigned
Release Date: February 2007
Maylen is a fairly normal pop-rock group aided by a mysterious name. The band is based in my new favorite city of Baltimore, Maryland. 410, holla at me.
How Is It?
The Awakening EP is everything kids seem to be craving these days. Ambient riffs, smooth vocal harmonies and just the right amount of cheese make Maylen primed for teenage stardom. “Killing The Flame” is perfect for college radio with handclaps and Andrew Thomas’ angsty vocals, while “Angels (Time To Breath)” could be the last dance at Prom both indie and “normal” kids enjoy together. This is easily accessible music without that guilty feeling. In that case, I'll take two scoops.
