ยป BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

Maritime may have a collective history (from The Promise Ring and Dismemberment Plan) to both cling to and run from, but the band steps forcefully into its own. More than a side project or an "ex-members of," they proves beyond a doubt that this is something viable and vital on its own. As George Michael so wisely said: Listen without prejudice. You'll be glad you did. A logical extension of where these players had been and, simultaneously, a clean break, the new band feels like freedom-uninterested in restrictions either self-imposed or publicly expected. Maritime made their first record right away, and Glass Floor (released in early 2004) gently hummed with life and pop and good cheer. In its simplicity, it felt like a gentle kiss-off, a mostly happy stroll that was content to walk a straight line. Bands could make records just like it forever, and the world would be a better place.
