The Maddocks Drop New Single "If Anyone Can"

Manchester post punk four-piece The Maddocks have shared their new single “If Anyone Can“.

Written, recorded and produced by the band and mastered by Geoff Pesche (Yard Act, Blur) at Abbey Road Studios, the track follows on from their debut single “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things“, released earlier this year.

‘If Anyone Can’ channels a darker, more mysterious tone than its predecesor and tells the story of confusion and blurred lines that are all too common when navigating the world of relationships. The lyrics explore the frustration felt in these situations, which the band based on their own experiences.

Speaking about it, the band explain:

“’If Anyone Can’ was the first song we wrote together as The Maddocks. The lyrics address those feelings of exasperation we’ve all experienced when trying to work out what to do when people don’t make their intentions clear. Ultimately, the song is about how often the best thing to do in those situations is to sack it off and let go, because nobody wants to be stuck in a cycle like that. The actual name of the song, however, is completely unrelated; it’s from the slogan of a defunct computer shop in Fallowfield. We just thought it was funny.”

Inspired by artists such as Fontaines D.C., shame and Queens of the Stone Age, ‘If Anyone Can’ showcases the Stockport quartet’s diversity of sound.
