Hailing from Stockport, England, and formed in 2022, The Maddocks are a four-piece indie rock band already beginning to make a name for themselves. They’ve just released their debut single, “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things”, a jangly post-punk track jam-packed with energy and optimism.
“”This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” is probably the epitome of what The Maddocks represents,” says the band. “We’re always getting ourselves into mad situations and laughing about daft stuff, and that’s basically where the song name came from. George spilled a Pot Noodle on the floor during our second ever rehearsal, causing Toller to sigh in exasperation and utter the words “this is why we can’t have nice things” – we were in the process of writing the song and the phrase just stuck!”
Offering a fresh take on the post-punk genre, with “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” The Maddocks have brought a sound that is energetic, catchy, and insanely danceable. The singer’s vocals exude an endless supply of charm and charisma, alongside compelling lyrics and a memorable chorus. With this sound, they’ve managed to strike a solid balance between edgy and poppy, creating an accessible style within a rock genre. As far as debuts go, this one is exceptional – keep your eyes and ears open for more from The Maddocks.
