NewinTown: Mayans


They are British, they are noisy pop and blend in some intriguing aspects of both the 80s and the 90s. Aside from the review of the single ‘Fitzpatrick’ you can read here, the band itself decided to give us a quick insight, also providing some interesting links. Not happy, we give you a taste of their music with the single under the cut.

Mayans is a teenage quartet from Bristol playing noisy, exciting pop music with nods to the best aspects of the eighties and nineties that takes on a thrilling form live.

We are all in school and yet through a number of different guises we have been producing and recording music together since about the age of 12. We are planning on bringing into the set a new Marvin Gaye cover for our Christmas shows.
