The Maccabees – Artist Information | The Camden Crawl 2012

In every British band, there is a little bit of Britain. From the revolutionary sounds of The Clash to the observations of The Streets and the character sketches of The Kinks, the musical legacy of this country is rich in bands that somehow couldn’t help be as much about where they’re from, as about where they’re at. The Maccabees are a young band making big strides towards becoming part of this grand tradition. A decidedly English guitar pop band, whose worldview has been formed by influences as disparate as the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, television cricket coverage and growing up in south London, this is a group with a unique slant on things, and who are eager to share it. Their highly anticipated new album ‘Wall of Arms’ is released on the 4th May and this will be preceded by single ‘Love you Better’ coming out on the Monday after you’ve seen them at the Crawl.
