Maximo Park - Apply Some Pressure
Label: Warp Records
Format: CDS


Cool easy listening pop punk on new single from Newcastle-based five piece Maximo Park, who seem destined for big things

Finally a new band where I don’t have to get stressed out about how much they sound like Gang of Four or Joy Division. While people follow most of the new sound-a-like mediocre NME bands like lemmings over a cliff, there’s a well deserved hype surrounding this Newcastle based five piece. This is a cool easy listening pop punk track that’s not pretentious and full of hidden art school meaning. Expect big things.

Track Listing:-
1 Apply Some Pressure
2 The Coast Is Always Changing
3 Fear Of Falling
4 I Want You To Leave
