MADISelf-described as ‘weirdo pop’, Welsh band MADI perform electronically-tinged art-pop. MADI’s sound has been compared to that of St Vincent, Kimbra, and Goldfrapp.

Welsh singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer Maddie Jones, performs alongside band members and Dan Fitzgerald (guitar, pedals, modular synth), Chay Lockyer (bass, synth) and Rich Welsby (drums, samples). The band were born earlier this year as a result of experimentation with production and electronic songwriting, and in-depth work with producer Charlie Francis (REM, Future of the Left, Sweet Baboo), after several successful years playing as Maddie Jones.

MADI believes in being more than just a band. Inspired by the relationship between colour and music, MADI directs videos, designs artwork, and builds sets. Inspired by the magical otherness of ideas like Boomtown and Burning Man, MADI wants to incorporate visual, immersive elements into the her live show experience. The audience become a part of it, not just observers. MADI’s development of ideas, collaboration with projection and lighting design, dance, circus, theatre and costume, makes for a sensory extravaganza.

MADI can be found via her website  Facebook  and Twitter where they tweet as @madibanduk

Raised by music obsessive parents on a diet of Ska, Bowie, Queen… and the Bay City Rollers. Discovered dance music and heavy metal at the same time making for a strange brew of taste. I do this for the love of an art form which welcomes all types and speaks to us all. Find me on twitter @simontucker1979.
