Live Video: The Maldives

photo by Dave Lichterman

Over the last eight years, alt-country band The Maldives have become one of the Northwest’s most celebrated and liked bands. Their live shows are joyful occasions that bring the crowd together, as all good concerts do, with swagger, soul, and hearts-on-sleeves abandon. The Ballard-based band stopped by during the Midday Show with Cheryl Waters to play some songs off of their October 2012 release, Muscle For The Wing, on Spark & Shine. The new album has been a long time coming for many fans, but it’s well worth the wait, as the quality of these performances live in the KEXP studio can attest. The Maldives’ next shows are January 23 in Portland, OR, at Mississippi Studios and then January 30 at The Shakedown in Bellingham. Keep up to date with the band on their website, and check out the in-studio performance videos here:
