Maidon Chats Of Nothing BUT Music!

Pop rock indie band MAIDON have an EP, as well as a handful of single's out and about, with more ideas on the way. Find out what the chatter is about from the band below.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Originally from Spain, I took part in different bands for several years. After some time off music and already settled in London, two years ago I started a new indie music project preceded by a period of fresh creativity. Maidon is singer-songwriter Aldan Torres, with close collaborator and arranger Ivan Pela in leading guitar. We both are long-term music partners and have been working on and off together.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

It is a question many people ask. It is the combination of the first and last syllable of two English towns (Maidenhead and Clevedon).

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

The band is based in Maidenhead, Berkshire (just outside London). This is a small town where there are not much music scene and just a few pubs plan small live shows. Regarding the bands in town I strongly recommend you one called Maidon.

4. How would you describe your style?

I would say we play a mix of pop and rock music. Nowadays, it is very common that this kind of music is labeled as indie as well. We try to do powerful catchy tunes but we do not pay much attention to in which specific genre it will be included.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We have released ten songs up to now, our debut was an EP containing three tracks and the rest have been dropped periodically as singles. You could find on them well-crafted pop-rock songs with a find production and melodies that will get stuck on your mind. I definitely you have to give a listen to Maidon.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

As restless musicians we are always working on ideas and carefully developing the ones we consider they have the best potential. Actually, we are honing six new tunes that will be recorded when they are ready.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

This is something we would love and it has been on of our main targets from the beginning of the project. There are no dates right now but we are pushing for a proper tour to introduce the band to fans and media.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Our plan is very clear, we would like to thrive in this business and end up being able to make a living in music. We are going to carry on writing songs, working properly to get an even better sound and trying to reach as many people as possible. But one thing is what you plan and another thing what it really turns out, let's hope both things coincide this time.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can listen to our music and/or buy it in all digital platforms. You can also listen and have more information on our official social media profiles and on our website (

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

The way it made them feel, that pleasant sensation where you think; this is making my day, I want to listen to more stuff of these guys.
