The Maldives Perform “Staring At The Sun”

Recorded live on KEXP.

May 9, 2017

The Maldives have been through it all. Since 2005, they’ve traversed the Seattle music scene as it continued to evolve, change, and contort itself in new directions. Their steadiness as contemplative folk rockers does not equate to a resistance to change. They still have acoustic guitars, steel guitars, and banjos thrown into the mix, but those are just means to an end for the larger questions the band seems to be asking. Get a glimpse as to why The Maldives have been playing sold out shows in Seattle in this performance of “Staring At The Sun,” recorded live at KEXP on Nov. 29, 2016.
