MAITA share new track - listen to "Road Song"

A little over a year since their debut record, Best Wishes, came out on Kill Rock Stars, Portland, Oregon-based MAITA share a new track, “Road Song”. The quartet have released two covers in 2021 - “Bag of Hammers”, originally by Thao & the Get Down Stay Down for the label’s 30th anniversary covers series, and a cover of Nirvana’s “Dumb”. MAITA’s back with original songs and this is the first look.

Maria of MAITA states, “”Road Song” was written in a foreign green room in a bedraggled, weary state. I always felt the "road song" was an overplayed songwriter cliche and wanted to poke fun at the tradition while attempting to capture how unromantic touring can be at times. It is with a gleeful irony that we release this now, at a time when we yearn so deeply to return to what felt so monotonous before.”
