Roy Vega and Maximiliano review

Maximiliano – Crux at Daylight

Genre: Pop Rock, Indie Rock, Alternative Rock

Similar artists: War on Drugs; The Killers; Tears for Fears

Maximiliano manages to entertain both modern indie fancies and dad vibes on the single Crux at Daylight.

Show me a quality indie-rocker and I’ll show you a classic rock collection. Until a few years back this may have been the dirty secret of many groups. Go ahead and read any interview with a new band and they’d waste no time in telling you how much they liked Mongolian punk and Romanian art-rock. 

Most of the ones that could actually play, or arrange songs sounded like they heard a lot of Dire Straits and Bruce Springsteen as they were coming up. Making music that can appeal to various parts of the demographic isn’t wrong itself. Modern bands have figured this out. 

They’ve also figured out that they want to be heard. Maximiliano’s Crux at Daylight warrants this fate. Like War on Drugs, an obvious influence, this sounds like nighttime highway music meant to be played in front of many people. It’s classic rock delivered under new guises. If it sounds good, it’s worth taking. 


Roy Vega – Tomorrow Today

Genre: Psychedelic Rock, Indie Rock, Alternative Rock

Similar artists: Tame Impala, Gus Dapperton, Snail Mail

Roy Vega experiments with the lightest of threads on the song Tomorrow today

Prog bands like Pink Floyd played around with silence. And, it sounded like what you’d expect. Like the absence of sound. Like a full stop. Modern prog/psych-pop bands like Tame Impala work with sounds that continuously feel ready to move into silence. 

There’s a particular art to doing this. This kind of music plays similarly to watching a drunk man stumble, nearly hit the ground a hundred times, but never actually do so. These are effortless acrobatics that takes years to master. 

Roy Vega promises to attempt to become a new master of the style. Tomorrow Today is an example of just how airy, and fragile the music can sound. This is a gossamer web of pop and dance, so light that if you breathe too hard you’d be afraid that Roy Vega’s tune would just blow away.
