The Maccabees – Can You Give It

Continuing their evolution from standard indie plodders with cool haircuts, The Maccabees have released their ssecond single in a row that stays in the memory more than the three minutes it last.

As hinted in the brilliant ‘Love You Better‘, Orlando Weeks voice has matured into something approaching menace, and the military drums and epic tremolo guitar verge on Editors for potential stadium grandiose.

Surely a hit for the busy festival season, and a thankful display of a band overcoming second album syndrome and actually turning talk and ideas into a worthy output. Hopefully a precedent many more will follow.


Release Date: 6 Jul
