Described as having a transcendent live show by indie radio touchstone KEXP, The Maldives debut full-length, 2009’s Listen to the Thunder (Mt. Fuji, produced by Grammy Award-winner Kory Kruckenberg), was the culmination of years of playing together at every kind of gig imaginable and a faithful document of who The Maldives are as a live band. The Maldives have rocked the stages at SXSW, CMJ, Capitol Hill Block Party, Sasquatch and Bumbershoot.
This time around the band took a different approach by working with Shawn Simmons (The Head and The Heart, Grand Hallway, Lemolo). Singer/songwriter Jason Dodson is a secret cinephile and his love of film sets the stage for much of The Maldives’s music. Dodson’s storytelling reflects characters and places that blur the lines between fiction and nonfiction, the past and the present. “Blood on the Highway” is the first single.
