MADAILA – /m de l/, [muh DEY luh] – proper noun – a psych pop band from Burlington, VT.
Psych pop juggernaut Madaila is upbeat, synth-heavy, and catchy. Vocal skill and range are immediately apparent. But in the tradition of Prince and The Talking Heads, an ornateness and heaviness expose Madaila’s complexity and depth. Tight arrangements and multi-instrumental performances showcase musical minds at work.
When Madaila is on stage, spontaneous expression and contagious melody coexist. The freakier elements of the band come to the surface as the five-piece explores the deeper possibilities lying within their concise-recorded material. The bands improvisational power gives each song the capacity to have its form pushed to the edges of comfort, or uplifting peaks.
Madaila released its debut, The Dance, in 2015. The band generated buzz with large hometown shows held on a ferry, in Burlingtons City Hall, in an aquarium, and on a downtown city block for their festival, Madaila on Main; as well as with festival plays at Mountain Jam, Clusterfest, Summer Camp, Frendly Gathering, Grand Point North, Waking Windows, Otis Mountain & Burlington Discover Jazz. Madaila has shared the stage with artists such as The Flaming Lips, Nathaniel Rateliff, Mac DeMarco, BØRNS, Grace Potter, Twiddle, Deer Tick, and Matisyahu. Madaila is part of Future Fields, an artist-run label and management group based in Burlington, Vermont.
IT ALL STARTED WHEN THREE COUSINS AND TWO FRIENDS GOT TOGETHER TO PLAY ROCK&ROLL IN A POSTER-PLASTERED BASEMENT IN NORTHAMPTON, MASSACHUSETTS, SURROUNDED BY STACKS OF NRBQ, JJ CALE, AND TOM PETTY RECORDS. EMBEDDED IN THE CONNECTICUT RIVER VALLEY THAT LEGENDS INCLUDING DINOSAUR JR. AND PIXIES CALL HOME, LUXDELUXE BUILDS ON THE VALLEYS HISTORY OF MUSICAL INNOVATION.
Churning out high-octane shows that leave audiences sweaty, LuxDeluxe delivers a serious punch of supple Rolling Stones-y grooves, persuasive danceable hooks, and rock-solid old-fashioned craft. Flaunting like Jagger, with all the sensuality of Bowie, lead singer Ned King creates a spectacle rarely seen since the heyday of rock&roll.
As the band rapidly gains recognition for their live shows, theyve been invited to share the stage with the likes of Deer Tick, White Denim, NRBQ, Reptar, Lake Street Dive, Rubblebucket, J Mascis, and Big Al Anderson. The highlight of last year was warming up a crowd of over 10,000 for VT Senator Bernie SandersCo
