Maps is a one man band with James Chapman from Northampton, UK, handling everything from programming to synthesizers and vocals. The debut album "We can create" can be described as Owl City meets Moby on a picnic with Stars of Track and Field. Electronic dream pop that will soothe your soul, imagine yourself in a space shuttle gazing at the stars with the tones of "It will find you". The opener "So low so high" is my favorite, the song is more upbeat but I also enjoy the bright pop of "You don´t know her name" and "Lost my soul". Maps followed up with "Turning the mind" in 2009 and in 2012, the 3rd full length album will be released. This is a great album folks.
