Bournemouth/Southampton based quintet I, The Mapmaker have announced their debut EP, Searching, will be self-released on May 18th. Searching was recorded and produced by Lewis Johns (Rolo Tomassi, Employed To Serve, Palm Reader, Muncie Girls) at The Ranch Production House in Southampton. The EP is a stirring amalgamation of frenetic hardcore, luscious ambience, and heartfelt deliverance that oozes integrity; Every song containing riffs big enough to crack a snow-capped mountain piste, married with a forlorn, hopeful yet sentimental melody that will envelop you like the preceding avalanche.
‘It was the spirit and candour of the band that encouraged me to become part of something that is truly special to me and everyone else in the band. I feel these attributes are what makes us as a band and form the foundation of our music. There is a sensibility that resonated with me as I hope it does with our listeners; an intimacy that evokes a sense of belonging and that we want everyone to feel a part of. – Nathan Kimber
