Brighton quintet MAYPINE have unveiled the epic new video for their recently released single “Give”, taken from their forthcoming EP Bend/Break, out July 6th.
Vocalist Jase explains: “It was directed by Lewis Cater, with cinematography by Nicholas Shield, at St Peter’s Church in Brighton. The church was chosen as the venue due to its size and architectural features, which allowed for an interesting backdrop. The video follows the EP colour scheme, with red lighting filling a dark space, with moments of bright white light at key moments of the song. As a performance video for our first single, it gives people a glimpse of what our live shows are like.”
Completed by Becky on lead guitar/vocals, Dan on rhythm guitar/vocals, Tommy on bass/vocals and James on drums, MAYPINE selected their name on the basis that it wouldn’t tie them to any specific genre. Previously playing material in a pop-punk vein, they reveal that Bend/Break should be considered their debut release: “As a band, we decided to remove our debut EP from all streaming platforms. This is not to say we’re not proud of it, but we just felt that we needed to be as authentic as possible and to write songs that reflect who we are, not who we felt we needed to be.”
