Crash My Model Car - Maybe

Maybe is simply fantastic. A pumping, bittersweet triumph, it is the pinnacle product from glorious new Scottish band, Crash My Model Car. More brutal than the Coldplay, baladeering types, yet more melodic and emotive than the new NME groups, Crash My Model Car have arrived at just the right time.

Maybe's dreamy chorus is instantly recognisable and Iain Morrison's raspy vocals soar set to a background of tonal, sweeping guitars. With a clear melody, chiming harmonics, crunching guitars and lovelorn lyrics, you can imagine Maybe as a stadium anthem sing-a-long. Eloquent and moving, the song's power pop is better than anything from Snow Patrol's last album.

Crash My Model Car are a wonderful band, and have great potential for a prosperous musical future.
